Judge Judy’s Son In Legal Trouble

PUTNAM COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE / AP

I am a big fan of Judge Judy. You can watch here in Sioux Falls on KDLT weekdays at 4pm. Judge Judy is a retired judge from New York who rakes in about $45 Million a year doiling out TV justice. It sounds like she may be giving legal advice to her son, who himself is a Lawyer. I’m sure she is very troubled by this news. According to Timenation.com:

 A suburban district attorney who is the son of TV’s “Judge Judy” is being accused of interfering in a child rape case in which the suspect is his personal trainer and recently lived with him. Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy has recused himself from the investigation of Alexandru Hossu, but the local sheriff claims Levy is still involved. “He is apparently trying to influence and affect the investigation, which could be perceived as an ethical violation of his official duties and perhaps even as an attempt to undermine it,” Sheriff Donald Smith said. In a response Monday night, Levy accused the sheriff of making “unfounded allegations and misstatements. My office acted properly in every aspect of the investigation,” he said. The question of Levy’s involvement in the case has turned into a volley of accusations between the two men, who have clashed publicly before over traffic tickets; Levy also made a veiled criticism of the sheriff’s office in a news release recently. Hossu, 35, was arrested last week on charges that he twice raped a 12-year-old girl in 2010. The sheriff said the victim, now 15, only recently reported being raped. Hossu made a brief appearance in court Tuesday in and is due back May 7. “In my view, Mr. Levy’s comments and actions would seem to suggest that, if he could have his own way, Mr. Hossu would never have been brought to justice for his crime and Mr. Levy’s relationship with him would never have been brought to the light of public scrutiny,” the sheriff said. He said Levy was trying to distract public attention “from what this case is really about: the vicious rape of a little girl by a man whom he housed and hired as his personal fitness trainer.” The sheriff also said Hossu is a Romanian in the country illegally, his work visa having expired 12 years ago. Without mentioning Levy, he said he has requested a federal investigation to determine if anyone illegally “harbored, shielded, aided or abetted” Hossu before or after the alleged rape.
