Lawyer defends Lokuta’s former secretary

Times Leader | 02/13/2007 | Lawyer defends Lokuta’s former secretary: "Judge Ann Lokuta’s claim that former secretary Susan Weber engaged in theft by giving documents to state investigators is “shocking, obscene, and insidious” and done for only one reason, an attorney said.

“It can only be meant to intimidate the … witness by suggesting (Lokuta) has a basis to prosecute Weber for criminal activity,” an attorney for the state Board of Judicial Conduct said in response to the judge’s claim. “It is even more reprehensible to carry this claim forward and charge the Board with ‘participating in the criminal activity of Ms. Weber.’”"
