Judge accuses police of fabricating story about her and public defender in back seat of car ( Ohio )
norwalk ^ | Feb 20, 2012

Posted on 02/21/2012 10:53:48 AM PST by george76

Akron Municipal Court Judge Joy Malek Oldfield is denying a police officer's contention that he found her and a public defender partially clothed in the back seat of a car that smelled of alcohol.

Oldfield was not charged during the early morning Feb. 5 encounter in a Copley Township parking lot. The person with her that night, Catherine Loya, an assistant public defender in Akron who appears regularly in Oldfield's court, was cited for physical control after she refused to take an alcohol breath test.

Oldfield deferred questions about the incident to her attorney, John Hill.

...

On the night in question, according to Hill, Oldfield and her husband, Charlie, were socializing with Loya and several other friends, most of whom were lawyers, at a local venue. The Oldfields had recently learned that a family member was gravely ill, he said.

At some point, Charlie Oldfield left for home, where a sitter was watching their two daughters.

The public defender looks like she’s a big fan of comfortable shoes.

Eeewww. Don’t believe it. Maybe the “public defender” slipped the judge a “Mickey”, no way that could have happened otherwise.

Nothing wrong going on here. The only error on the judge’s part is that she chose an inappropriate time to receive oral arguments.

Not true in Ohio.

Code you cited indicates that they have to be in the driver's seat to be "in control"; but the story says that they were found together in the back seat.

You may argue about how they got there, but it looks to me like the officer can't charge her for being drunk in the back seat.

“Dear Abby, Dear Abby
Well I never thought
That me and my girlfriend would ever get caught
In the back of my car just a shootin’ the breeze
With her hair up in curlers
And her pants to her knees.
Signnnned, Just Married”

My apologies for not remembering who wrote this song. John Prine?

The story mentions that the car was running (keys in the ignition) with its headlights on. It was approx. 1:45AM.
