The high-profile Allegan couple is in separate pots of legal hot water. Joyce Watts, the long-time Allegan county clerk, is being investigated by the state Attorney General’s office over possible criminal irregularities.
Meanwhile, John Watts has been disbarred for a year by the state Attorney Discipline Board. The long-time barrister isn’t contesting allegations of various transgressions of ethical behavior, and faces a preliminary hearing next month on criminal embezzlement, fraud and auto theft charges.
