A New Jersey Municipal Court Judge, arrested for Drunk Driving and threatening the cops with retaliation from the Bench in November, 2007 has paid a steep price.
He lost his Judgeship, pleaded guilty to DUI, losing his driver license for about a year, paid a fine of $1,000, is barred from holding any public office ever again and, today, his Law License was suspended for at least 3 months.
It is quite unusual to hear of cases where a sitting Judge gets dealt with in the exact same fashion as the rest of us. This appears to be one such case.
I am quite pleased at how this turned out. Equal Treatment under law means exactly that. It's good to see it in action.
