Justice of the Peace


The judge failed to maintain order and decorum in the criminal proceedings before her; failed to treat the defendants she magistrate with patience, dignity, and courtesy; and engaged in willful conduct that cast public discredit on the judiciary and the administration of justice when she wore a Halloween costume during the performance of her judicial duties.
