Better Late Than Never

The Indiana Supreme Court reprimanded a judge who failed to take action to implement an order from a higher court that reversed his order revoking the defendant's probation. As a result, the defendant was incarcerated for over a year and subject to parole supervision for an additional year thereafter. The Supreme Court expressed concern about the judge's initial lack of remorse and attempts to blame his staff for failing to act in the wake of the reversal. Eventually, the judge acknowledged misconduct and apologized.  (Mike Frisch)
