Love how this fat out-of-shape pig actually thinks he can slap people as long as the Utica City Fat Crew or Bailiffs is standing around on the "secret button" to protect his fat ass from insertion of his fat head.

LaDuca is apparently unaware of two other complaints against this Utican lowlife collecting a check for being an asshole and making a disgrace of the CPL every day and running his mouth when his fat parasite pension-fiend lazy bailiffs are at his beck and button-call.
Few of these people would survive in the service in a war zone. They have ways of "disappearing" problem-children like this.

The future of Utica City Court Judge Gerald Popeo is in question as the state Commission on Judicial Conduct investigates whether he should be punished for an alleged series of berating and bullying remarks.

Nearly three years after Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara and Oneida County Chief Public Defender Frank Nebush filed a joint complaint against Popeo in 2011, McNamara confirmed that he is among the witnesses who have been asked to attend a scheduled hearing this week regarding the judge’s actions.

What this might mean for Popeo’s judgeship – from possible censure or admonishment to removal – remains unclear because the state judicial commission does not discuss pending investigations.

Popeo came under fire in early 2011 after he was criticized for telling a public defender to “shut up” before then lashing out at a defendant, Jeffrey Blount, who had smirked in the courtroom.

“You’re standing there with a grin that I would love to get off the bench and slap off your face,” Popeo told Blount, before then holding Blount in contempt.“What are you laughing about?… How about 30 days in jail for contempt. That’s hilarious, too, isn’t it?”

Popeo later dropped Blount’s contempt charge, admitting he had reacted with “intemperate words” and did not completely follow legal procedure.

But the district attorney and public defender had enough, McNamara said. Remarks by a judicial ethics expert who was quoted in the Observer-Dispatch at the time prompted McNamara to file a formal complaint against Popeo.

“If the conduct is repeated – as opposed to a judge having one bad day – attorneys do have a responsibility to take some action to protect their clients and try to get a change in the judge’s behavior, regardless how difficult it may be,” Cynthia Gray, director of the Center for Judicial Ethics of the American Judicature Society, told the O-D on Jan. 11, 2011.

Popeo – who was elected City Court judge in 2000 then re-elected in 2010 – could not be reached for comment.

McNamara believed Popeo’s belittling remarks in open court were creating the risk that some cases would not be treated fairly.

“We felt that we didn’t have a choice as much as an ethical responsibility to do something, so at that point we had to take the information that we were aware of, including transcripts of different matters, and forward them to the Commission on Judicial Conduct,” McNamara said.“We did this with great reluctance, because there can be serious ramifications for us in the courtroom.”

Nebush, head of the county Public Defender’s Office, was unavailable for comment.

Late last year, Popeo disqualified himself from handling any criminal cases in Utica City Court, which typically involve members of the DA’s Office and the Public Defender’s Office. Officials with the state Office of Court Administration could not comment on Popeo’s reasons.

In the meantime, Popeo will handle civil matters, landlord-tenant disputes and small claims court.

After a formal hearing takes place, the state Commission on Judicial Conduct might dismiss the complaint or caution a judge privately, according to the commission’s website. The commission also might publicly admonish or censure the judge, as well as remove him from office.

McNamara would have preferred to address the issue privately, but such efforts in the past did not rein in Popeo’s verbal attacks, he said.

“Our concern was that the steps that had been taken to resolve this matter beforehand behind the scenes had not worked, and it appeared that the behavior was escalating and becoming worse,” McNamara said.

Ahh yes another subhuman upstate loser who advocates not abiding by the law because their ignorant and probably prejudiced against anyone not with polish or eyetayin right?

You DO realize this is a large part of why nobody will move there and open a business right? Maybe you should move to North Korea where they just kill everyone they don't like you sound like your ignorant upstart NY ass would fit right in and why not? It's what you are whether you admit it to yourself or not your words tell the world you're lowlife and probably just as scummy as the criminals. In short you're lowlife and belong up there with your parasites and corruption you seem so enamored with.

When your courts break laws retard.. and YES you're a retard, you all suffer. It will obviously take you unsophisticated losers stuck in CNY a few more generations of inbreeds to grasp basic law and its place in society.

Enjoy your "results"!

LOL! You lowlife upstate NY hicks really are conflicted! Apparently the DA and the NY State Commission on Judicial Conduct disagree with your loading-dock welfare ass. You losers don't want or DESERVE law & order you just want to get your utican race hate on and hang "hoodrats". He HAS broken CPL rules and he was no angel in his youth either so save yourfucking retard ghetto victim cries for someone who appreciates lawless scumbags and feeble impoverished upstate losers.

If you can't abide by the law as set forth by Albany then just shut thefuck up losers and stop embarrassing yourselves there upstate. You always have all the answers yet you don't look so cool now!

You are precisely right where you losers need to be and the collapse is just around the corner so go suckoff some cop and have a nice day badgebunnies.

Only in uterus do the bottomfeeders and ignorant advocate lawlessness and such scuzzy subhuman behavior from such a man. If he'd have threatened me he wouldn't be anywhere in SIGHT his fat bailiffs are no help on long dark highways, lord already knows!

I agree, but why is the DA pissed off. Popeo is usually pretty tough on crime, you would think that the DA would like that.

Wrong. Losers and scum like you with no respect for the law expecting judges to not follow the law is what is wrong with America. The people on "popeo's side" are outnumbered by the law abiding people of the State of New York so I don't know where you think your crime advocating azz is going there.

The guy lost control if you can't accept it you should all move to a communist country we have laws in the US and ALL PEOPLE are expected to follow them. So go on crying but the fact of the matter is if this loser had followed the law he wouldn't be stuck doing evictions and not having a job in about 2 months there are other complaints lodged against him not mentioned in the article sofuck all you loser criminals defending a corrupt loudmouth loser judge who self-destructed you seem to enjoy being the redneck loser joke of the US.

Great job judge it is about time someone has the balls to call it like it is. Maybe if the DA had some, Oneida county would not be loaded with criminals.

This guy is a Grade A asshole and deserves whatever he gets, which I hope is dismissal and forfeiture of his pension. I sat on a jury for this "judge", and it is clear he respects no one. Whether you are a defendant, lawyer, prosecutor or even a juror, you're treated with complete disdain. Clearly someone has forgotten who he is there to serve and who pays his handsome salary. I honestly can't blame the guy for laughing at him, he is a pathetic excuse for a judge and a man.

Idiot.
Treating everyone, including the lawyers and court staff, with total disrespect is not the way our judges should handle themselves. Also,getting frequently pulled over while under the influence, is not proper judicial conduct.

Skip it. These upstate LOSERS defending him don't care for facts or truth. They're DEPENDANT on the front of the "gloriousness" of Oneida Cornhole County's pubic service staying "intact".

Like the children they are they'll SCREAAAAM and mod you down religiously and attack an imagined flaw they claim you have. In short, they're just the usual pisspoor educated upstate bigots and unworldly losers. Much like Gerald Popeo. The Utica-Area breed of phony pubic-service maggots stick together.

I just enjoy watching scream for all their flaws. So deserved!
