I Went To Municipal Court Today

Today I visited a municipal court.  The Judge encouraged defendants to see the prosecutor before pleading guilty.  It was obvious that this particular Judge wanted to give the benefit of the doubt to all those who appeared before Her Honor.  She either encouraged the defendant to see the Municipal Prosecutor or, at the very least, to apply for a Public Defender.

The Judge was very professional and respectful of everyone in the court room.

Not once did I see this Judge acting as a Prosecutor and a Judge.

Why did Judge DiLeo act as both?
