Drugs, Alcohol, Domestic Violence, Hiding Assets: Senior Judge Under Scrutiny from Allegations of all Four

A Pennsylvania Judge is in hot water.

He was arrested on criminal domestic violence charges for allegedly choking and shoving his wife.

The Judge reportedly made a plea agreement under which he would enter rehab for drug and alcohol abuse and receive probation.

He is also alleged to have defrauded the family court presiding over his divorce from his first wife by representing that he could no longer afford his alimony payments when the reason is that he is purchasing another home, in Florida.

Presently, the Judge is not presiding over any cases.

The complainant and the judicial conduct board contend that there would be an appearance of impropriety.
