A Detroit city councilman has been charged with misconduct in office for allegedly accepting monetary payments to influence how he voted on “certain city matters,” a prosecutor said.
Gabe Leland, 37, was charged Friday by the Monroe County Prosecutor’s office, which alleges that he accepted the payments between Jan. 1, 2017, and Jan. 31, 2018.
Prosecutor Michael Roehrig said the charging document alleges that Leland “accepted payments of money to influence his vote on certain city matters over the course of his employment as a city councilman.”

Roehrig was assigned to the case after Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy had cited a conflict of interest.
