Judges Are Human Too…

October 24, 2010

“Judge Kenneth Popejoy has been cited in a complaint filed Friday by the Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board that says he brought his “judicial office into disrepute” during a reckless-driving incident earlier this year.

The board is seeking a disciplinary hearing with the Illinois Courts Commission on the matter and is asking that action “deemed appropriate” be taken.

The state commission has a wide range of remedies available, including removal from the bench, but recent hearings involving similar cases against other judges have most often resulted in letters of reprimand.

Popejoy was fined $500 and sentenced to six months of court supervision, a lesser form of probation, after pleading guilty to reckless driving on Aug. 3.”
