LANSING— Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel today announced the sentencing of Adam Mullin, 25, of Millington, for his assault of a female colleague.

Mullin was found guilty of four assault-related charges back in October before Huron County Circuit Court Judge Gerald M. Prill. He will spend one year in Huron County Jail followed by three years of probation. Mullin has already served 149 days of his jail sentence and now has 216 days remaining; his probation starts immediately.

“Adam Mullin’s actions violated the very trust we put in our law enforcement officers,” said Nessel. “We are grateful to the Michigan State Police and to Huron County Circuit Judge Prill for ensuring justice is served.”

Nessel also commended Assistant Attorney General Danielle Hagaman-Clark, who successfully prosecuted Mullin, for securing his conviction.

“Domestic violence is a choice batterers make to abuse their intimate partner,” said Hagaman-Clark.  “That choice stems from their desire to control and manipulate their partners at the cost of all else.  In this case, Mullin made a choice to put his desire to control his partner over his oath to serve and protect the community.”

The charges against Mullin were the result of a Michigan State Police investigation.  Following Mullin’s conviction, MSP moved to permanently revoke his law enforcement certification and terminate his employment.

In 2018, Michigan State Police’s Incident Crime Report indicated that there were 48,264 domestic violence offenses reported to Michigan law enforcement.
