- Judge is suspended without paying after guilty plea in underwear case - December 10, 2019
A New York judge was suspended Friday without payment after he pleaded guilty for a second-degree attempted burglary for attempting to steal a woman’s underwear.
The New York Court of Justice continued the suspension of Judge Robert Cicale and said that he should not be paid during the suspension, reports the New York Law Journal. Cicale was previously suspended with wages.
Cicale was accused of trying to get in from an intern who worked for him when he was a city lawyer. The woman reported that she heard a noise and saw a man run away, according to earlier reports from the Associated Press and WABC.
The police said they found Cicale on the street with several pairs of the woman’s dirty underwear.
Cicale told the police that he had taken the underwear on a previous occasion, and he went to the house to take underwear again.
Cicale was arrested in March 2018. He pleaded guilty earlier this month, according to newsday coverage and the New York Daily News.
Cicale had worked as a judge in Suffolk County and generally heard criminal cases.
A lawyer for Cicale, Michael Brown, said that Cicale accepted responsibility for his actions, according to the Newsday story. “He has tackled his psychological problems proactively and is a better person for that,” said Brown.
