Magistrate Misdemeanor

The Pennsylvania Court of Judicial Discipline has concluded that a former magisterial judge engaged in sanctionable conduct as a result of his guilty pleas to forgery, identity theft and perjury (first degree misdemeanors) as well as false signatures in nominating petition and criminal conspiracy (both ungraded misdemeanors).

The commission ordered that the judge be removed from office and barred from judicial office in the future. (Mike Frisch)
