State Senator John Bizon of Battle Creek, who represents the 19th District that includes Calhoun, Barry, and Ionia counties, entered a guilty plea on February 17th to the sole count in the complaint that charged him with committing an assault and battery, on August 14, 2021, at Oaklawn Medical Group in Marshall, Michigan.
Barry County Prosecutor Julie Nakfoor Pratt said Sen. Bizon admitted in court to committing a battery against a nurse practitioner during a medical examination.
Pratt handled the case after the Calhoun County Prosecutor recused himself. The offense is punishable by up to 93 days in jail and/or a fine of $500. Sen. Bizon’s sentence will be determined by the Judge at a sentencing hearing, which has not yet been set.
