Town Court Judge Censured for DWI

The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct has released a Determination dated October 12, 2010, that Somerset Town Justice Donald P. Martineck (Niagara County) should be censured. 

On July 30, 2009, the judge pled guilty to a DWI charge. In its determination, the commission noted that, “While such conduct warrants a severe sanction, we note that respondent was cooperative during his arrest and did not identify himself as a judge, assert his judicial status or otherwise attempt to obtain special treatment because of his judicial office.”
