Charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct after police say he tried to enter a female jurist’s hotel room wearing a bedsheet three times one night in April at a judicial conference, a Pennsylvania magistrate has apologized for his behavior, pleaded guilty to harassment and paid a $438 fine.
The female district magistrate reportedly accepted his apology and wished him well, saying that she hopes he resolves his drinking problem, a Cumberland County prosecutor tells the news agency.
Gummo’s lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the AP. Gummo remains active as a district magistrate, the news agency notes.
