JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court has agreed to publicly censure a Jackson County judge for misconduct and suspend him without pay for 30 days.

The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission earlier recommended the measures for District Judge R. Darryl Mazur, who didn’t deny the ethical violations. The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports (http://bit.ly/1To9DTC ) the court last week ordered the suspension to start in mid-December.

Mazur has said he “will move forward, take my lumps for making the poor decisions I made, make amends and get beyond it.”

In a handwritten letter on court stationary, Mazur asked a woman he had placed on probation for domestic violence if she was interested in a romantic relationship. He also tried to interfere in another judge’s case in order to help his former neighbor.
