It’s been a bad week for Manitoba judges.

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

First there are calls for a Manitoba Justice’s removal from the bench for comments he made during a sexual assault sentencing. Now a Manitoba judge has been charged with assaulting a woman.

Judge Brian Corrin, 65, was charged with assaulting and threatening a family member. According to police, the alleged assault caused minor injuries to the woman.

Corrin has been a judge since 1988. He’s been place on administrative leave, pending the outcome of this case.

Corrin was suspended from the bench for 30 days back in 1996. A panel of six judges found him guilty of misconduct. He skipped a court hearing so that he could oversee repairs to his car.

Just goes to show that judges are as human as everyone else.
