Four NJ Judges Investigated in Parking-Ticket Probe

The New Jersey attorney general is investigating whether four municipal court judges in Jersey City fixed parking tickets for friends and family.

One of the judges under investigation is Wanda Molina, who was the chief judge until she resigned last month, the New York Times reports. Officials told the newspaper she is suspecting of getting tickets dismissed for a companion.

The other three judges have taken unpaid leaves of absence. One of them is suspected of seeking dismissal of a ticket for a judicial colleague, and another of dismissing a ticket issued to himself.
