POLITICAL CAREER

05/15/2019 - Rep. Inman was removed from committees pending resolution of federal extortion and bribery charges. 

He was indicted the morning of May 15, 2019 on attempted extortion and bribery for allegedly exchanging money for voting "no" on the prevailing wage law initiative, according to the indictment filed in the U.S. District Court's Western Division.

Inman also is accused of making a false statement to an FBI agent. The charges are laid out here.

The indictment alleges Inman solicited money through text messages between June 3, 2018, and June 5, 2018, to a labor union and the Warren-based Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights.

According to the court filing, Inman texted a MRCCM representative in June 2018 that "Carpenters have been good" to him, and that they have "only 12 people to block it."

"You said all 12 will get $30,000 each to help there [sic] campaigns," he texted according to the complaint. "That did not happen, we will get a ton of pressure on this vote . . . People will not go down for $5,000, not that we dont [sic] appreciate it. Please get with all the trades by Monday . . . We never had this discussion, Larry."

Inman's arraignment date is not yet set. He faces up to 20 years in prison if he is convicted as charged.

Rep. Inman was first elected to the Michigan House in 2014 after emerging victorious from an eight-member GOP primary field.  In the general election, Inman faced off against Democrat Betsy Coffia, who he defeated with 54 percent of the vote.
