Woman Wants Genesee County Judge’s Sexual Misconduct Cases Reviewed

At least one person is calling for sexual assault and misconduct cases to be reviewed from a judge accused of sexual harassment himself.

Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Farah was accused by a former MSU law student and intern who worked under him, Grace Ketzner, who claims Farah made inappropriate comments and advances toward her. Now, another woman who had a sexual assault case presided over by Farah in 2001 wants that case looked at again. Kristin Trevarrow was 15 when her assailant was sentenced to probation by Farah. She’s calling for her case to be reviewed and possibly others saying Farah may have been biased.

Farah submitted his resignation to Governor Gretchen Whitmer following the allegations by Ketzner. His effective resignation date is November 9.
