Ind. Courts - Marion County Traffic Court Judge Young suspended for 30 days

The Supreme Court "Order Accepting Agreed Discipline" was filed at 5:00 PM yesterday evening and released this morning. It is one-page long:

On July 16,2010, the Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications ("the Commission") filed a "Notice of the Institution of Formal Proceedings and Statement of Charges" against Judge William E. Young ("Respondent") pursuant to Ind. Admission and Discipline Rule 2S(VIII)(F). Respondent did not file an Answer. Special masters were appointed by order dated September 8, 2010.

The Commission and Respondent have tendered a "Statement of Circumstances and Conditional Agreement for Discipline" ("Conditional Agreement") for review by the Court pursuant to Ind. Admission and Discipline Rule 2S(VIII)(H). Having reviewed the Conditional Agreement, the Court ACCEPTS the facts and agreed discipline. A copy of the Statement is attached to and is made a part of this order.

Accordingly, William E. Young will be suspended for thirty (30) days from office without pay, and the costs of this proceeding will be assessed against him. An opinion of the Court will follow in due course, which shall indicate when the suspension will take effect.

The attached "Statement of Circumstances and Conditional Agreement for Discipline", signed Nov. 17, 2010, is 8 pages long, plus 38 pages of attachments.

The ILB has OCRed the scanned document, reduced it in size, and made it available here.
