Private Warning of a former Municipal Court Judge. (03/12/12).
The judge failed to comply with the law and demonstrated a lack of professional competence in the law when he unilaterally negotiated plea deals and dismissed criminal cases without the consent of the State. The judge further lent the prestige of his office to advance the private interests of charitable organizations when he allowed a defendant to make a donation to a charity in exchange for having a speeding citation dismissed.
