|Judge Marquis Jones|
By: David Ross
If you are a judge you get off pretty easy even after committing serious crimes.
The New Jersey Supreme Court has sanctioned a judge from the Superior Court of Ocean County, who groped six women at a party.
The court suspended judge Marquis Jones for four months without pay and ordered him to complete an alcohol treatment program.
A complaint said the 53 years old, married father of two children, inappropriately touched five female probation officers and an employee of a pub in Toms River during the party organized by the Probation Association of New Jersey.
The judge, through his lawyer, said he was unable to remember what happened because he was drunk. Jones denied any "intentional, inappropriate" touching.
Jones earns $ 165,000 a year.
