Traffic Court judge suspended without pay after accusation of lewd photo

    The Philadelphia Traffic Court judge accused last month of showing a lewd photo to a female staffer has been suspended without pay.

    Sources said in December that Traffic Court Administrator Judge Gary Glazer would recommend that Judge Willie Singletary be removed from the bench permanently — not the first time Singletary has found himself in trouble. Past offenses include $11,000 in traffic fines.
    The Inquirer reports Singletary’s suspension is indefinite.

    The accusation against him came only days after Glazer was appointed to his administrative position. He replaces Administrative Judge Michael Sullivan, who was removed by the state Supreme Court over an ongoing ticket-fixing investigation.
