Washtenaw County’s prosecutor’s office is about to undergo a major shakeup. Friday is the first day on the job for new county prosecutor Eli Savit.
Savit won a three-way primary in August, before running unopposed in November’s general election.
During his campaign, Savit promised to end cash bail, eliminate zero-tolerance policies and put rehabilitation ahead of incarceration.
Savit wants Washtenaw County to serve as an example to the rest of Michigan.
