DETROIT (WOOD) — A federal judge in Detroit has set a $10,000 bond for a Kalamazoo doctor detained by federal immigration officials.
If Dr. Lukasz Niec can put up the money, he will be released from jail while his immigration case progresses.
Niec, who works for Bronson Methodist Hospital, came to the U.S. from Poland as a child about 40 years ago. He was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents Jan. 16 for administrative immigration violations.
The investigation in to Niec, 43, was triggered by a child abuse case in which he was accused of biting his now-6-year-old daughter last July. Police and Children’s Protective Services investigated, but a bruise on the daughter’s shoulder was never determined to be a bite mark. Niec was never charged and retained his parenting time with the girl. Niec’s family has said that the abuse claim was “fabricated” by his ex to gain an advantage in a child custody battle.
