Suspect arrested in stalking of state and city official

    Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Christopher Dean Baldwin, 40, of Flushing, in connection with stalking Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and her wife, Plymouth City Commissioner Alanna Maguire.  
    On March 5, 2024, at approximately 8:34 a.m., Plymouth police officers were dispatched to Attorney General Nessel’s family home in Plymouth for reports of a man sitting on her front porch. Upon arrival, officers came in contact with the defendant.

It is alleged that Baldwin rang the doorbell of Nessel and Maguire’s home, before sitting on their front porch. Baldwin was arrested at the scene without incident by officers from the City of Plymouth Police Department. It is alleged that Baldwin had 

attempted unsolicited contact with Nessel on a prior occasion. 

Baldwin came to a March 4 meeting where Plymouth City 

Commissioner Alanna Maguire was in attendance. 

Baldwin has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor stalking. 

“The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office will always take any and all threats against public officials very seriously. This simply will not be tolerated. Unfortunately, in today’s climate threats to elected and other officials have become normalized. Not by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, ever,” said Worthy.  

    Baldwin was arraigned last week in 35th District Court before Judge Michael Gerou and given a $100,000/10 percent bond with a GPS tether. He is also ordered to have no contact with the victims, no controlled substances or alcohol, and to surrender all firearms. A pre-trial is scheduled for March 15, before Judge James Plakas.
