ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The State Commission on Judicial Conduct says a town justice from western New York has resigned after receiving disciplinary complaints for his handling of court funds and traffic ticket receipts.
The commission says Pembroke Justice Robert E. Alexander, who was also a justice of Corfu Village Court in Genesee County until April, has also agreed not to seek or accept another judicial office.
According to a commission complaint, Alexander failed to provide receipts for money received in more than 370 traffic cases and routinely granted reductions in traffic cases in order to direct fines to Corfu Village Court instead of the state treasury, in many cases eliminating state surcharges.
Alexander, who is not an attorney, has denied the allegations. He resigned effective Nov. 15, ending the commission case.
