Granholm denies former attorney parole

Governor Jennifer Granholm has issued an executive order that denies a former Flint attorney’s parole request, reports The Bay City Times.

From The Times:

Shannon H. Pitcher, previously expected to be paroled on Oct. 20, is now looking at spending her entire 10-year sentence behind bars. …

In 2007, Pitcher pleaded guilty to one charge of embezzlement of a vulnerable adult, a felony. In November, Genesee County Circuit Judge Judith Fullerton sentenced Pitcher to 23 months to 10 years in prison and to repay more than $48,000, the Flint Journal reported at the time.

The charges stemmed from Pitcher allegedly mishandling the accounts of people Probate Court judges had deemed incapable of handling on their own. Prosecutors determined Pitcher had stolen $288,137, the Flint Journal reported on Nov. 20, 2007.
