Jury Finds Former MI State Lawmaker Larry Inman Not Guilty

Former Michigan state Representative Larry Inman, who was accused of attempted extortion and soliciting bribery back in 2019, has been found not guilty after five years of attempting to prove his innocence.

It only took the jury 45 minutes to determine Inman was innocent.

"I think he's very glad to have this behind him. He feels vindicated because this has been a very long struggle for him. And he's never said anything other than that he is not guilty of these charges, and I think the jury believed that,” said Inman’s defense attorney, James Fisher.

Fisher also talked about the challenges Inman may face in the future, saying that he thinks “it'll be very hard for him to get back involved in politics after this just because he's struggled through this whole entire process” and Fisher hopes “the people that he represented see this and look at him in a positive way.”

“I think he is a good man who deserves to be credited for what he did for his constituents," Fisher added.

Not everyone is happy about the jury’s decision to declare Inman an innocent man, however.

One man in particular let his displeasure be known following the verdict.

“While I respectfully disagree with this outcome, today’s verdict does not deter my commitment to fight public corruption with impartiality and safeguard the public’s trust in our democracy,” said the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan, Mark A. Totten in a recent statement to the Detroit Free Press.

While Inman is innocent, his defense attorney is right, this case may very well have killed Inman’s chances at ever working in politics again.

Inman has suffered the consequences of these accusations no matter the verdict.
