A former Livingston County judge who spent nearly six months in jail last year following a judicial scandal has now been disbarred.

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board, in a Feb. 24 order, disbarred Theresa Brennan effective March 18. The order comes after she was suspending in December 2019 from practicing law.

She had served as a judge for about 14 years before being removed from the bench in June 2019 by the Michigan Supreme Court. Brennan served as a 53rd District Court judge.

Investigators with the Judicial Tenure Commission said Brennan lied about a relationship with a State Police trooper, the lead detective in a double-murder case over which she presided.

She also was accused of “failing to immediately recuse herself from hearing her own divorce case, tampering with evidence in her own divorce case and lying under oath,” according to a state Supreme Court summary of her case.

In January 2020, Brennan was ordered to serve six months in jail after pleading guilty to felony perjury. She also was placed on 18 months of probation and ordered to complete 200 hours of community service.

In the Feb. 24 order, Brennan consented that disbarment was an “applicable” penalty because of the guilty plea and her earlier removal from the bench. She also was ordered to pay $825 in costs.

If it were you or me we would get years and thousands of dollars
