Mich. judge pays 12-year-old ticket

FLINT, Mich., March 19 (UPI) -- A Michigan judge who paid a $50 outstanding parking ticket from 12 years ago said he was unaware of the fine until asked about it by a reporter.

Genesee Circuit Chief Judge Archie Hayman, who paid the fine Friday, said he didn't know about the outstanding parking ticket until a Flint Journal reporter asked him about it Thursday afternoon, the newspaper reported.

Hayman said he looked into the matter and court records indicated the case had been closed, but he paid the $50 because it was "the right thing to do."

The Journal said Hayman was one of three Genesee County judges whose outstanding parking tickets combined totaled more than $500. The other judges were Herman Marable Jr. and Tracy Collier-Nix.

Marable said he paid the tickets Thursday and had waited to address the fines because he thought the city attorney's office was going to dismiss them. Collier-Nix said she was unaware of the tickets, which date from before she was a judge, and pledged to pay them.
