Ken Rodriguez: Can a judge charged with DWI sentence a drunken driver?
For starters, defendants stood before a judge who'd just been arrested and released from the Magistrate Court system.
Not everyone in the legal community does.
Defense lawyer Alan Brown: "I don't think this will affect how he'll conduct trials. I would expect him to be fair."
Another: "From the incident report I've read, your honor, I'm as innocent as you are."
Police say last week's DWI arrest was Angelini's first. Police say no one got hurt.
"No big deal," one lawyer says. "Sentencing comes later."
If allowed to resume full judicial duties, consider one of the first cases on his docket today. A DWI trial.
