A Livingston County resident initially charged with prostitution-related offenses was sentenced this morning to 15 days community service for creating a disturbance in a public place.
Iosco County District Judge Allen Yenior also ordered Pinckney resident Timothy Gladney to pay nearly $900 in fines and costs.
Gladney, who has a law practice in Harrisville, north of Oscoda in Iosco County, was initially charged with one count each of offering to engage a female for the purpose of prostitution and soliciting, accosting or inviting a female for the purpose of prostitution or immoral act
However, in a March plea deal with prosecutors, Gladney pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace. All the charges are 90-day misdemeanors.
Prosecutors said that Gladney and a client argued in the courtroom hallway
near the clerk’s office Nov. 28, 2007, thus disturbing the peace.
Michigan State Police at the Alpena post alleged the client’s wife
reported that Gladney made comments to her that led her to believe he wanted sexual favors in exchange for either monetary reward or better representation of her husband in his criminal case. Gladney was court-appointed to handle the man’s case.
After that report, police monitored several subsequent contacts between Gladney and the woman. Police say in those contacts Gladney made comments that “clearly indicated he was sexually interested” in the woman
