Warrant issued for McDonough

A warrant has been issued for St. Joseph County Prosecuting Attorney John McDonough, who was arrested earlier this year on drunken driving charges.

The St. Joseph County District Court confirmed Monday a warrant was issued for McDonough. It alleged he violated terms of his bond conditions. Details of the violations, however, were not released.

Authorities said McDonough turned himself in Monday and was released after he posted bond in the amount of $500.

McDonough was charged May 11 with drunken driving and having open intoxicants in a motor vehicle. The charges followed a complaint brought by the Michigan Department of Attorney General.

The bond violations have been added to McDonough’s record.

A written waiver of arraignment was filed June 17 with 3B District Court. Kalamazoo County District Court Judge Vincent Westra was appointed by the state court administrator to preside over the proceedings. McDonough’s pre-trial hearing was July 24.

His trial is tentatively expected to begin in November.
