Supreme Court suspends license of ex-judge who stole cocaine

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court says the law license of a former Common Pleas judge who stole cocaine from evidence packages will be temporarily suspended.

The suspension of 59-year-old Paul Pozonsky’s license is effective Sept. 18.

He resigned after nearly 15 years as a Washington County judge in June 2012. He was charged a year later.

Pozonsky pleaded guilty in March to theft, obstructing the administration of law and misapplication of entrusted property. He’s acknowledged stealing the drugs to feed his addiction.

He was sentenced in July to 30 days to 23 ½ months in the Washington County Jail.

Pozonsky was released from jail this month after serving his minimum 30-day sentence on work release.
