NY state police investigating Judge Judy's son

Posted: Updated:

CARMEL, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities are probing the son of TV's Judge Judy - a suburban New York prosecutor already involved in a conflict-of-interest case - for his prosecution of a 2009 county sheriff candidate.

State police Senior Investigator Paul Schneeloch tells The Journal News (http://lohud.us/19UP1Op ) Saturday "there are strong inclinations" the office of Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy might've acted improperly.

Levy's mother is Judy Sheindlin. He declined to comment to the newspaper.

Authorities are looking into allegations Levy improperly prosecuted a 2009 county sheriff candidate for petition signature fraud. They're also probing the plea deal in that case.

Prosecutors are also examining whether Levy's contribution to the defense fund of a friend accused of child-rape created a conflict of interest. Levy's recused himself and has said he's met all ethical standards.

    Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders on Tuesday sued the team over a pay system they say had them working hundreds of hours for free at games and at mandatory public appearances at which they were subjected to groping and sexual comments, and one said they had to take a jiggle test so their boss could see how firm their bodies were.

    Renting out someone's apartment is an easy way to get an inexpensive place to stay if you're a tourist, and cheaper and more convenient than most hotels.
