Warren Law clerk Wisam David Mikho was fired after being accused of accepting $300 from a woman with a pending case. She had made the payment to Mikho and when she went to the court’s cashier window she was told to make the payment to the court. Since she already had given the funds she was surprised. Since in-person court payments of fees and fines are handled directly by court clerical staff, Mikho was questioned and the court contacted Warren police.

Wisam David Mikho is a student at Thomas M. Cooley law school, earning 12 dollars an hour in Warren’s legal department. A video of the woman handing him something was captured on the courthouse’s video surveillance. The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office issued a warrant charging Mikho with one count of embezzlement of at least $200 but less than $1000. Misdemeanors are punishable by a fine of $2000 or three times the amount in question, whichever is more, or up to a year behind bars.

At his court appearance Mikho pleaded guilty. Judge Jennifer Faunce gave him a sentence of $800 in fines and court costs, 200 hours of community service and afforded him 90 days to pay $300 restitution to the city, according to Macomb Daily.

One week after Mikho was placed on probation and ordered to reimburse taxpayers, he went on to gamble at Caesars Windsor. When Warren police and 37th District Court officials learned he went to the Caesar’s Casino to gamble before he paid his fine his probation was amended. Court records showed that he arrived at the casino at 4:13 am and left at 6:24 am. He was with a 23 year old man. Wisam David Mikho wanted to exchange $60,000 for Canadian dollars. He ended up exchanging around $30,000, which he lost while playing blackjack.

The Ontario Provincial Police alerted the Warren police. They commented, “I do not know the source of the funds that Mikho had with him but due to your recent investigation, it would seem suspicious that he would have this amount of money on his person,” said detective constable Jan Shean, of the OPP’s Windsor Casino Enforcement Unit.

Warren police were wondering how Mikho had that much money on him, especially considering that he had asked the court for time to pay his fines and court fees.

Wisam David Mikho has been ordered to attend gamblers anonymous, and to stay out of gambling establishments as well as go to counseling for gambling. Mikho’s attorney did not comment.
