Prosecutor Sues County In Fight To Stop Criminals From Going Free

DETROIT (WWJ) – Wayne county Prosecutor Kym Worthy has filed a Renewed Motion for Preliminary Injunction as part of her lawsuit against the County.

Worthy first filed suit against the county to stop a proposed budget cut that would affect her ability prosecute cases.

Several cases have already been dismissed as result of the cuts.

WWJ’S Legal Analyst Charlie Langton says Worthy is in a difficult position.

“She’s stuck, if there are no prosecutors to prosecute the case then – yeah – criminals may go free and that’s Kym Worthy’s argument to the judge. ‘I need more money so I can keep the prosecutors and prevent crime,'” Langton said.

“Kym Worthy is upset that Robert Ficano promised that he would not cut her budget and when Robert Ficano (Wayne County Executive) cut her budget – now Kym Worthy is going to court,” he added.”And Kym Worthy says ‘you can’t cut my budget now until we have a full-blown hearing on all the facts and all the merits’ as to why all the prosecutors budget should not be cut. That’s what Kym Worthy is doing right now.”

A hearing has been set for Wednesday morning.
