Judge Charged with DUI
Posted on Dec 23, 2011 in DUI/DWI, Legislation
Randal Todd, a western Pennsylvania judge was charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol after Mt. Lebanon police said he caused a minor accident Dec. 16.
Police said the 56-year-old Allegheny County judge was confused and smelled of alcohol when he was stopped at 8:51 p.m. on Shady Drive West.
The criminal complaint says Todd responded that he was “just a little drunk” when Officer Matthew Mankamyer asked if he’d been drinking. Investigators said Todd then failed two field sobriety tests.
Administrative Common Pleas Judge Jeffery Manning said Todd was temporarily assigned to civil cases until his criminal case is resolved.
Defense attorney Bob Del Greco called the arrest “embarrassing” and said Todd could be a candidate for a first-time offender program.
