Detroit businessman locked in litigation over land deal faces felony charges

Detroit Robert Carmack, a businessman engaged in a public feud with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and accused of stealing a million-dollar property from the city, has been charged with three felonies.

Wayne County Circuit Court records show Carmack, 59, of Woodhaven, is facing one count of false pretenses with intent to defraud $100,000 or more, and three counts of uttering and publishing a document affecting real property. The false pretenses charge carries up to 20 years or fine of up to $35,000, according to state statute. Uttering and publishing carries a penalty of up to 14 years in prison.

The charges are tied to March 2, 2016, the same day that the city, in a civil lawsuit, has alleged the auto shop owner "fraudulently sold" city property that's been the subject of the litigation filed by Detroit in June.

Reached Wednesday, Carmack deferred comment to his attorney, Mike Rataj, who declined to comment but confirmed Carmack is set to be arraigned Thursday on the charges in Detroit's 36th District Court.
