As promised in today’s story, you can click here to read the formal admonishment handed down to city court judge James A. McLeod by the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct (WARNING: Not Suitable for Work). Click here to read the “agreed statement of facts” concerning the incident.
McLeod takes full responsibility for completely losing it on the bench and denying a 17 year-old his right to due process.
The episode is being referred to as a “good reminder” of how not to arraign a juvenile on the State Bar of Michigan Blog.
