State Representative Brian Banks is in hot water with the law - facing felony charges.

He's accused of submitting phony pay stubs to get a loan from a credit union.

His campaign slogan says you can bank on Banks. But the state attorney general says you can't bank on Brian Banks' finances.

The state rep allegedly submitted phony pay stubs to get a personal loan from Detroit Metropolitan Credit Union. He now faces felony charges that could put him behind bars for years.

There was no answer tonight at the home of the Harper Woods Democrat, nor at the door of the house down the street where neighbors say his mother lives.

This is not the first time Banks' finances have gotten him in trouble.

He's being charged as an habitual offender for bouncing checks in 1999, 2000, 2003 and 2005.

His criminal record came up during election two years ago and still he easily won the Democratic stronghold.

At a softball game attended by some of his constituents tonight they are not surprised Banks has struck out.
