Now I know where the phrase, "Sober as a judge" comes from.

Someone please explain how being suspended WITH pay is punishment. The taxpayers continue to pay his salary and others are forced to cover his workload while he sits at home! Sounds like everyone but the judge is being punished to me.

He'll get a slap on the wrist then he'll back on the bench passing judgment on others who are arrested for DUI/DWI, just like a Hot Springs judge who negligently killed his child is back on the bench as a juvenile court judge terminating parental rights and destroying families.

"ISOLATED [emphasis mine] lapse of judgment"??? Yeah, right.

Arkansas has proven time and time again that judges are above the law.
