Politician sentenced in theft of campaign signs
BLOOMFIELD HILLS — An elected official has been sentenced to community service after a school board candidate's campaign signs were removed from yards.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Bloomfield Hills City Commissioner Stuart Sherr was also ordered this summer to pay $1,125 in fines and court costs.
Sherr was accused of illegally removing the yard signs of Anjali Prasad, a former federal prosecutor who lost her local school board bid last fall.
Prasad said she lost about 90 signs before she went to police with home video of a theft.
Sherr has said the signs were too close to curbs and a threat to public safety.
Bloomfield Hills City Manager David Hendrickson said he expects Sherr to step down from the commission after this fall's election.
