Maricopa County judge censured for misconduct

The Arizona Supreme Court has publicly censured a judge for misconduct in office.

The state’s Commission on Judicial Conduct announced the censure of Caryl Parker on Monday. Parker has served as a pro tem justice of the peace in Maricopa County and as a pro tem judge in the Chandler Municipal Court.

A complaint was filed against Parker last year, accusing her of improper ex parte communications in a case involving an injunction against harassment.

The commission says the high court agreed to censure Parker after she admitted violating the judicial code of conduct. Under the code, Parker is required to be honest and candid with the commission when responding to a complaint.

  1. Wow,…I am shocked, corruption in AZ! How can that be? With a disbarred County Attorney Candy Andrew Thomas, the most expensive sheriff in the world, who is so tough 12 defenseless inmates, who’s deaths couldn’t be covered up, have died in his jails. Joe “dirtbag” Arpaio is ultimately RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE DEATHS. He also helped make AZ the laughing stock of the country.
