The 63-year-old man was arraigned Monday in 41A District Court in Shelby Township for his alleged involvement in the Macomb Township crime.
A charge against a Chesterfield Township man was reduced Monday from second-degree to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to police. Antonino Giannola, 63, was initially charged with the felony offense over the weekend, but the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office changed the charge to a misdemeanor after further reviewing the case. In this instance, second-degree CSC would have been merited if authorities considered Giannola to be in a position of authority over the 15-year-old girl who reported the attack, the Macomb County Sheriff's Office said. “The relationship between the two was not such that they determined him to be in a position of authority over the girl," Sheriff's Lt. John Michalke said of the decision made by the …
Macomb County Sheriff's Office reports the incident took place Friday at a business in the 21 Mile area.
A 63-year-old Chesterfield Township man is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage employee Friday inside his Macomb Township business, police said Monday. The man, who is scheduled for a formal arraignment Monday in 41A District Court in Shelby Township, faces a charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to the Macomb County Sheriff's Office. The charge stems from an incident Friday at the man's business off 21 Mile in which a 15-year-old worker reported that he assaulted her while the two were alone. The suspect was lodged in Macomb County Jail in lieu of a $20,000 cash/surety interim bond over the weekend, the Sheriff's Office states. Check back with Patch for updates.

Shelby Township approved an interlocal agreement this week that negotiates how an estimated $8 million in unfunded legacy costs would be divided should the 41A District Court relocate to Macomb Township.
Shelby Township officials may have given their blessing this week for the 41A District Court's relocation to Macomb, but court personnel shouldn't start packing up their offices just yet. While the board's 6-1 vote Tuesday to approve an interlocal agreement between Shelby Township and Macomb Township provides a step forward in the relocation process, it is far from a deed to the new property. Macomb Township’s board of trustees must still approve the agreement and ultimately, court administrators will decide where the court sets up shop. “We have had our input through attorneys to shape the interlocal agreement and (Shelby) has passed an agreement that we will probably be able to live with,” said Macomb Clerk Mike Koehs. With copies of the…

The committee suggested several changes in the agreement's language, particularly regarding Macomb Township's responsibility to share the long-term healthcare funding obligations associated with the move.
The possible move of 41A District Court from Shelby to Macomb Township inched another step closer yesterday. The newly re-appointed court committee publicly reviewed a draft of the seven-page inter-local agreement sent by Shelby Township officials that details part of the plan for moving the court. If approved, the building could be constructed near 25 Mile and Broughton Road, near the township offices. Follow Macomb Patch news on Facebook and Twitter. The draft reviewed Tuesday details Macomb’s responsibility to share the long-term healthcare funding obligations associated with the move. Shelby Township’s liability for retiree healthcare costs is estimated at $8 milllion. Clerk Michael Koehs, Trustees Nancy Nevers and Roger Krzeminski, …

A new agreement drafted by Shelby Township officials could move relocation talks with Macomb Township forward once again.
The Macomb Township Board of Trustees breathed new life into the long-debated 41A District Court move from Shelby Township during their Sept. 12 meeting. In response to an inter-local agreement sent by Shelby Township officials that details plans for moving the court to Macomb, the Board of Trustees agreed to re-appoint a committee to review the contract. “We’ve all had the chance to read it, we are not here tonight to discuss or debate it, but I would suggest the Board reactivate and appoint the 41A District Court committee,” Koehs said. Trustees Dino Bucci, Roger Krzeminski, and Nancy Nevers, along with Koehs make up the committee. The court building could be constructed near 25 Mile and Broughton road, near the city offices. In …

Negotiations between Shelby and Macomb townships have resumed, but the issue of retiree health care costs continues to be a sticking point.
A May 2 resolution by the Shelby Township board of trustees may have renewed relocation discussions for the 41A District Court, but Macomb Township Clerk Michael Koehs said residents should not expect any action by Macomb's board in “the foreseeable future.” “It’s not scheduled in the foreseeable future on our township board agenda, not at this stage,” he said. “It’s something the board is considering. We’ll get a copy of what the attorneys (of Shelby and Macomb) send, read it, analyze it and then respond appropriately.” This move to renew negotiations comes almost a year after Macomb Township decided to dissolve its court relocation committees following concerns that Shelby Township was not providing written acknowledgement that it would …

Pending the results of the Macomb County medical examiner's autopsy report, Joseph T. Reiner could face a felony murder charge in December. Reiner is the suspect in the Feb. 23 stabbing of a Macomb Township woman.
When stabbing suspect Joseph T. Reiner, 27, appeared in 41A District Court Wednesday, members of the courtroom found it hard to ignore Reiner's newest facial features, namely two tattooed devil horns on his forehead. "It's surprising to me," said prosecuting attorney William Cataldo. "He definitely chose to appear in court with devil horns on his forehead ... I've never seen this before, someone try to create the persona of evil. It presents a negative appearance." Reiner, who is currently facing charges of home invasion and attempted murder stemming from the Feb. 23 stabbing of a Macomb Township woman, could soon find his charges upgraded to felony murder. With the Sept. 20 death of the victim, Joanne Eisenhardt, 69, Cataldo is awaiting …

Judge Douglas P. Shepherd was to make a key decision in the case of Joseph T. Reiner, the suspect in the Feb. 23 stabbing of a Macomb woman, but the case has been postponed. The next court date has not been set.
Today's court date for Joseph T. Reiner, the suspect in the Feb. 23 stabbing of a Macomb Township woman, has been postponed once again following an adjournment Sept. 9. A Fraser resident, Reiner, 27, is alleged to have broken into 69-year-old Joann Eisenhardt’s Fairchild Road home on the morning of Feb. 23 and stabbed her twice in the neck with kitchen knives before taking two rings from the victim and fleeing the scene. Judge Douglas P. Shepherd, of the 41A District Court, was to make a key decision today regarding the prosecutor's attempt to use the testimony provided to police by a now-dead witness in the case. Because Eisenhardt remains in the hospital as a result of her injuries and is unable to identify Reiner as her attacker, …
