Judicial Conduct Board: Probable cause for formal charges against ex-traffic court judge

    Philadelphia Traffic Court Judge Willie Singletary has submitted his resignation more than a month after being suspended without pay.

    Singletary is accused of showing a lewd photo to a female court employee.

    Update, 5 p.m. March 1 Documents were released today by the Judicial Conduct Board detailing the accusations against Singletary and the finding of enough probable cause to file charges against him.

    The report details Singletary’s encounter with the female employee, who says Singletary showed her photos of his genitals.

     

    The Inquirer reports Singletary will have to submit his resignation again because his first notice came via iPhone. State law requires judges to resign directly to the governor, which means Singletary owes Tom Corbett a call.
