Judicial candidate written up for claiming erroneously to be judge

Posted By on Fri, Jul 15, 2016 at 11:21 AM

The Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission has issued a letter of "informal adjustment," a minor punishment, to an unsuccessful judicial candidate who claimed he was a judge when he was not.

James Williams II, who lost a race for circuit judge in Jefferson County in March, was a revocation hearings judge for the state Parole Board. His campaign literature called himself Judge James Williams II and claimed 20 years experience handling misdemeanor, felony, domestic and juvenile cases. In the investigation, Williams admitted his material could be subject to misinterpretation and that his parole position did not equate to an administrative law judge position. He agreed that such advertising should be avoided in the future.
