Ambridge Magisterial District Judge Andrew Hladio has tendered his resignation from office effective 4:30 p.m. today. Hladio’s resignation comes after the Pennsylvania Court of Judicial Discipline issued an order in October suspending him from the bench for the second time over allegations of misconduct.

District Judge Hladio was first suspended from the bench in February as part of an emergency order issued by the Court of Judicial Discipline that came in reaction to a 52-page complaint filed against him by the Judicial Conduct Board. State investigators allege that Hladio violated standards of conduct for District Judges and the Pennsylvania Constitution by repeatedly making inappropriate advances towards clerks in the court system; Hladio allegedly continued those unwanted advances even after being rebuffed by the women and reprimanded by court administrators and higher ranking judges.

The Court of Judicial Discipline lifted its suspension of District Judge Hladio in June, even though the charges filed against him were still pending trial.

The Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board filed a new round of formal charges against Hladio on October 11th, alleging the judge has been retaliating against witnesses from the previous complaint. The Court of Judicial Discipline subsequently suspended him for the second time on October 27th.

Officials tell the Beaver Countian that District Judge Hladio’s resignation is expected to put a close to the cases pending against him in the Court of Judicial Discipline.

So a judge accused of misconduct numerous times has the privilege of resigning instead of being removed, faces no recrimination, and gets a fully paid retirement package? No wonder the nation is broke; can’t fix stupid.

What he quits his job and the sexual misconduct charges disappear. That is wrong on so many levels.anybody else would lose their job and face charges.

Elected officials can’t be touched unless prosecuted, convicted and expelled. No one will bring any charges let alone prosecute, not in this county anyway. They operate with impunity and are accountable to no one.

Listen up Pal….Locker room talk does not even slightly measure up to what these Hollywood predators…actor, producers and other vile bastards have engaged in….MAGA……haha eat it up frumpy…..old bitch clinton is as obsolete as ole Connie the Con! Your side lost !!! Get over it….you will have another chance at destroying all that Americans hold dear by trying to get your party back on board in 2020…..OH WAIT…..2020 is a guaranteed Trump 2020….it’s a lock! And to. the Judge in this article even tho you cruise around at face level to all the lady parts mentioned in the mens locker room, it is certainly not acceptable to just be grabbing them ………well you know?!?

Right, locker room talk isn’t in the same category. But, to say that 12 or 16 women who have come forward with allegations against your boy are liars just means that you’re a Stepford wife savant who drank a wee bit too much of the Kool-Aid. Trump could say that he shits gold and people like you would be panning the sewer lines coming from the White House. Almost a full year without a single legislative accomplishment (executive orders aren’t legislative accomplishments)…umm yeah, that sounds like MAGA is well on its way to the annals of national embarrassments. 2020?? I don’t think your boy will be tossing his hat in the ring. See, next year is this thing called midterm elections and that’s where Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan will become minority leaders. To explain for the benefit of the Kool-Aid drinkers, that’s where they sit on the sidelines and look on helplessly as the majority party sends your boy home early through this thing called impeachment and Senate hearing to remove him. Look on the bright side though…he will have more free time to grab pussies. Doubt the ladies will just “let him do it” because his star will have fallen but once again a bright side… he can spend lots of quality bonding time with Jr. in the cell next door.
