Michigan Judge Suspended And Censured After DUI Arrest

Comments (0)

The Michigan Supreme Court has ordered that Roseville District Court Judge Catherine Bove Steenland be suspended for 90 days and publicly censured after she was arrested in Ogemaw County for driving under the influence last year.

According to reports, Steenland was driving along a trail that winds around the lake when she backed her vehicle into a ditch. Witnesses called 911 after observing her attempts to remove the car from the ditch.

At the time of her arrest, Steenland’s blood-alcohol content was 0.23, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08. She entered a plea of guilty to charges of operating a motor vehicle while visibly impaired.

The discipline proceedings were conducted by the Judicial Tenure Commission, who recommended 90 days of unpaid suspension and public censure. The recommendation was accepted by the Michigan Supreme Court on December 9 and Steenland’s suspension went into effect on December 18.
