The state Judicial Conduct Board today filed formal charges against Philadelphia Traffic Court Judge Willie Singletary, who has been on suspension since a cashier accused him of showing her pictures of his penis on his telephone. The charges contain graphic details about Singletary's alleged actions during a night court session in December. They include:
The charges say the woman told a police officer at Traffic Court about the incident the next day and then told Common Pleas Court Judge Gary S. Glazer, who is overseeing Traffic Court.
The Judicial Conduct Board case could lead to public trial before the Court of Judicial Discipline, which could normally can lead to a reprimand, suspension or removal from office. But Singletary's status as a judge is a little unclear today.
