WOODBRIDGE — Superior Court Judge Carlia Brady was arrested at her Woodbridge home after she allegedly tried to interfere with police attempting to serve an arrest warrant for a man living at the same address, according to an NJ.com report.
Brady has been suspended from her judicial office without pay, effective immediately, according to a statement from Chief Justice Stuart Rabner’s office.
The Supreme Court has approved this determination and referred the matter to the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct for further action, according to the statement. All court proceedings in connection with the criminal charge will be handled in a vicinage other than Middlesex, where Brady had been assigned to the Civil Division.
“An accused is always presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty, but public confidence in the Judiciary requires that a judge charged with a crime by a law enforcement agency be relieved from all duties at once,” the statement said.
