Orange County Judge Accused of Misconduct

Orange County Superior Court Judge Richard W. Stanford Jr. has been accused of waiving traffic fines for friends. He is alleged to have had certain traffic cases for his friends transferred to his courtroom. He then allegedly would waive the fines associated with each case. Judge Stanford Jr.’s courtroom usually handles felony cases and so it would seem odd for him to be handling traffic cases.
Judge Stanford Jr. must now appear before a statewide judicial panel this summer. The panel will review nine allegations of misconduct between 2003 and 2010. The allegations have been submitted by the Commission on judicial Performance. One would think that the legal system is fair and impartial. However, as these allegations illustrate, prosecutors, police, and even Judges can be susceptible to misconduct from time to time.
It will definitely be interesting to see how the panel rules on the allegations made against Judge Stanford Jr. Wallin and Klarich will continue to follow this very closely, as Wallin and Klarich has been in the business of helping people with their criminal matters in Orange County for over 30 years.
