Dem Mayor Slapped With 6 Felony Charges After Bashing The Police [Details]
It looks like crime has become a big issue in the Michigan City Mayor’s race. Court documents show incumbent Ron Meer faces six felony counts for intimidation and official misconduct, and two misdemeanors for false informing “resulting in substantial hindrance to law enforcement.”
Last month, Meer claimed the arrest of his stepson on drug charges was politically motivated.
Shortly afterward the police chief resigned and wrote that he was directed by Meer to pull city officers out of the county drug task force.
Court documents show that Judge Richard R. Stalbrink recused himself from the case because his wife is on the corporate council for Michigan City.
In what Law & Crime has called “pretty awkward timing”, since there’s an election set for Tuesday.
The situation up in Michigan City is messy, even by the standards of politics. Meer figuratively butted heads with law enforcement after his stepson Adam Bray was arrested during an October 10 traffic stop for allegedly possessing heroine and cocaine. The defendant was also accused of illegally owning a gun because he was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a felony cocaine conviction, according to The South Bend Tribune.
Meer made allegations that the drug case was politically motivated, and intentionally set to occur before the election. He had supported the incumbent in the Democratic primary last year instead of current LaPorte County Prosecutor John Lake.
The prosecutor insisted that the new charges against the mayor were supposed to be kept out of public eye.
We reached out to the county prosecutor by phone and he told me those records weren't supposed to be made public. The online docket shows the files were sealed earlier this week and were just unsealed this afternoon.

So after muscling so many people to step down in order to hide his charges, the Mayor’s efforts to cover-up his own crimes have failed. And now the world knows it. How ‘Democrat’ of him to use his position to bully and bash the police. It seems this crook is going to get what he deserves!
