Ex-Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith sentenced

Recommended Posts

MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – Former Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith was given a maximum prison sentence of 21 months and was fined $20,000 following his involvement in a criminal enterprise scheme.

Smith, who resigned from his position in 2020 following an investigation into the scheme, will also have to pay $69,900 in restitution and will be on 18 months of supervised release. 

The 55-year-old ex-prosecutor pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice charges after he asked coworkers to lie to the FBI during the investigation. He admitted to stealing $75,000 from a campaign fund from 2012-2019.

Smith’s sentencing was delayed due to a separate investigation related to a scheme where he tapped accounts that held money from drunken driving cases, bad check cases and assets forfeited in drug crimes, according to the state attorney general’s office. The alleged scheme dated back to 2012 totaled $600,000.
