Banned From The Bench

The Indiana Supreme Court has permanently banned a senior judge from judicial service and suspended for one year with all but thirty days conditionally stayed.

The judge stipulated that she "engaged in an improper romantic relationship with a client" while serving as the client's public defender. Because the judge was certified to serve as a senior judge, the conduct also violated the Indiana Code of Judicial Conduct.

NewsOne reported that the conduct took place during a prison visit.  (Mike Frisch)
