DETROIT (AP) - A Wayne County judge who was repeatedly late to work has been suspended without pay for 30 days.

The Michigan Supreme Court last week accepted a settlement between Sheila Gibson and the state Judicial Tenure Commission. In March, the court had rejected a reprimand as too light a punishment.

The Judicial Tenure Commission investigated Gibson after TV station WXYZ tracked her arrival and departure from Family Court during a week in 2012 and found she arrived after 10 a.m. and left between 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Parties were waiting in the courtroom.

Gibson’s attorney, Brian Einhorn, has said she was late for “family reasons.”

The unpaid suspension will start Oct. 8.
