A former Tempe Municipal Court judge who stabbed his wife during a domestic violence incident at their Chandler home last year has been sentenced to four months in jail.

Thomas Robinson pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in April. He was also sentenced to three years of probation.

Robinson was arrested by Chandler police last September and jailed on suspicion of 10 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of tampering with evidence.

He allegedly stabbed his wife multiple times in the chest, back, arm and face. She survived.

The arrest was reported to the Commission on Judicial Conduct and Tempe city officials placed Robinson on paid administrative leave, but he retired within three days of being put on leave.

Robinson had been with Tempe courts since 1995 and had been a municipal court judge since 2009.
