NOVI (WKZO) -- A judge accused of wrongdoing by the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission says he will fight the allegations. Novi District Court Judge Dennis Powers is charged with falsifying his expense accounts and failing to show up for work.

Officials say Powers attended conferences unrelated to his job when he should have been in court. Powers says he has repaid money for mileage and says the report does not comment on his ability of a judge, only on poor record keeping.
