State Representative Larry Inman (R-Williamsburg) is headed to trial this week. Inman is accused of trying to sell his vote on a controversial measure. He’s been charged with multiple federal crimes, including lying to law enforcement. Soon after he was indicted, the state House stripped Inman of his committee positions and took away his Lansing office. But Inman has refused to step down from his position. His attorney maintains his innocence.

Representative Christine Greig is the leader of the Democrats in the state House. She says the Legislature will be watching the outcome of the trial.

“Well, I think if he’s convicted, we certainly need to step up and really think about what’s the next step. Is it – are we ready to expel him?”

The state House already passed a resolution urging Inman to resign. A spokesman for Speaker of the House Lee Chatfied did not return a request for comment.
