MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — A former assistant state attorney general has pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor counts of willful neglect of duty by a public officer. 

The Kent County prosecutor's office says Brian Kolodziej also agreed Wednesday to a 5-year suspension of his law license. Two felony charges of misconduct in office were dismissed. 

Kolodziej was charged in December, more than a year after he was forced to resign when authorities learned he had an intimate relationship with a woman while handling her allegations of sexual assault. 

Kolodziej was prosecuting a former Central Michigan University student who insisted he had consensual sex with the woman in 2016 after meeting her at a Mount Pleasant bar.
