Brian Banks, an 8-time convicted felon, took the oath of office Wednesday in Lansing.
It’s back to work Tuesday for state lawmakers following the holiday break.
Some Michigan lawmakers may be looking to stop a recently elected eight-time felon from serving in the House.
“I think at the end of the day, we’re supposed to live in a world, a society that believes in rehabilitation,” Banks said.
Banks, 35, was convicted eight times between 1998 and 2004 of writing bad checks and credit card fraud.
