This Michi­gan man’s sto­ry went viral: Corey Har­ris appeared in a Zoom court hear­ing for a sus­pend­ed license while seem­ing­ly dri­ving. How­ev­er, a shock­ing twist emerged – Har­ris’ license sus­pen­sion was lift­ed in 2022, but paper­work delays led to his wrong­ful arrest and detention.

The inci­dent, cap­tured on video, showed Har­ris attend­ing the May 2024 hear­ing for an Octo­ber 2023 traf­fic stop. Judge Cedric Simp­son, unaware of the error, revoked Har­ris’ bail and jailed him for two days.

Court records con­firmed Har­ris’ claims. His license sus­pen­sion, linked to unpaid child sup­port in 2010, was reversed in 2022. But the Sag­i­naw Coun­ty Friend of the Court, respon­si­ble for updat­ing records, failed to noti­fy the authorities.

This cler­i­cal error result­ed in Har­ris’ pub­lic humil­i­a­tion and unnec­es­sary deten­tion. Seek­ing to clear his name and pre­vent sim­i­lar cas­es, Har­ris vis­it­ed the Sec­re­tary of State’s office.
