Ex-state senator may keep pension despite charges





MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) -- One of Michigan's top Republicans in the 1990s is allowed to continue getting his $79,000 a year state pension regardless of the outcome of his trial on sex charges involving children.


The Muskegon Chronicle reports Tuesday documents it obtained under Michigan's Freedom of Information Act say Phillip Arthurhultz has a monthly pension benefit of $6,620, or $79,440 annually, from his 15 years representing the Muskegon area.


Robert Geake, chairman of the Michigan Legislative Retirement System, says Michigan law would prohibit stripping Arthurhultz of his pension in this case.


Arthurhultz in June waived his right to a hearing to determine if there is probable cause for trial, and is awaiting trial. The former Republican state senator faces charges in Lansing.


A message seeking comment was left Tuesday with his attorney
