RALEIGH, N.C. -- State Court of Appeals Judge Doug McCullough said Monday he expected to be treated like any other citizen on his charges of DWI and speeding.
The judge was charged by the Highway Patrol early Saturday on U.S. 70 near Atlantic Beach with driving 47 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone. He also registered 0.12 percent on a breath alcohol test. The legal limit is 0.08 percent.
The 61-year-old judge, whose address was listed as Atlantic Beach, was scheduled to appear in court Nov. 22.
McCullough joined the court in 2001.
"I am disappointed at this situation," McCullough said in a statement. "I have dedicated my career to the rule of law and expect to proceed through the court system as would any other citizen of the state."
"Rule of Law" - that means this joker is Republican, right?
