The Judges Of Sangamon County

The Illinois Review Board has proposed a suspension of six months of a former judge for misconduct in office:

The Administrator charged Respondent with  misconduct arising out of Respondent's actions as an associate judge in Sangamon  County in dismissing a traffic citation issued to the daughter of another judge  by indicating on the court file that the State had filed a motion to dismiss the  citation due to insufficient evidence when Respondent knew that that State had  not done so. The Hearing Board found that Respondent engaged in conduct  involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation in violation of Rule  8.4(c) and in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice in violation  of Rule 8.4(d) of the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct (2010). The Hearing  Board recommended that Respondent be suspended for a period of six months.
