Judge Pleads Guilty Following Improprieties in Handling Drunk Driving Cases

Judge Pleads Guilty Following Improprieties in Handling Drunk Driving Cases

Former North Carolina Judge Kristin Ruth pleaded guilty to charges stemming from her failure to discharge her judical duties related to her handling of 60 drunk driving cases (also referred to as OWI or operating while intoxicated under Michigan law) over the past 4 years. 

The former judge had signed orders presented to her by defense counsel that were drafted in such a way so as to avoid driver’s license penalties and sanctions for individuals who were convicted of drunk driving. 

As part of her plea agreement, Ruth will not serve any jail time as a result of her misdemeanor conviction, so long as she continues to cooperate with investigators.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
    an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking
    about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks
