Judge Reprimanded

A juvenile court judge has been reprimanded by the Iowa Supreme Court as a result of an alcohol-related traffic offense.

The judge was stopped driving home from a charity event. There was a open beer container and whiskey in the car. His breath alcohol content was .135.

The court noted that the judge was "polite" to the police and did not try to use his judicial office to avoid responsibility. (Mike Frisch)

Just when I thought that I am losing my faith towards supreme court judges, my faith was restored. Although only a little bit.
