Brooklyn Judge Landicino, of Yorktown, Pleads Guilty to DWI

New York Supreme Court Justice Carl J. Landicino pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

New York Supreme Court Justice Carl J. Landicino, a Yorktown resident, pleaded guilty to a driving while intoxicated charge, according to multiple news reports. 

Landicino was stopped on Oct. 17, 2012 on I-87 in the town of Colonie, which is a suburb of Albany, for driving aggressively, police said. A state police trooper saw "physical signs of intoxication," according to a news release issued by Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares, the Journal News reported

Police said Landicino failed standardized field sobriety testing, and then refused to submit to a chemical test to determine his blood alcohol content.

The man was originally charged with driving while intoxicated and multiple vehicle and traffic law violations. 

After his guilty plea on Tuesday, Landicino was sentenced to "a one-year conditional discharge if he successfully completes substance abuse treatment, pays a $500 fine, has an ignition interlock device installed on his vehicle, and attends a victim impact panel and drinking driver program," the paper reported. His license will be suspended for six months.

We pay this man $174,000 a year to uphold the law, but rather, he intentionally broke the law. A Supreme Court judge that breaks the law, should no longer be a Supreme Court judge.

On point 100%. This bloody fool should no longer be a judge.

I agree, it doesn't make any sense. We hold sports figures accountable as role models for young children, but not a Supreme Court Justice. Is there anything "we the people" can do to have him removed from this position? Does anybody know?
