Suspended judge accused of hindering suspect's arrest pleads not guilty
A suspended New Jersey judge on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to a charge of hindering the apprehension of a robbery suspect.
Judge Carlia Brady who was only recently appointed as a judge in Middlesex County, is accused of failing to notify police when suspect Jason Prontnicki allegedly spent at least an hour last week in her Woodbridge home, reports MyCentralJersey.com, a Gannett newspaper site.
She is represented in the Somerset County Superior Court case by the immediate-past president of the Essex County Bar Association, Robert Scrivo, a partner of Morristown-based McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter.
Brady was suspended without pay earlier this month, pending the outcome of the case. She was released without bail but must surrender her passport.
