FORT WAYNE, Ind. - A northeastern Indiana judge is apologizing for saying during a retirement reception that one of the women could have a lucrative second career as a phone-sex operator.
Allen Superior Court Judge Stanley Levine used a microphone to make the comment Friday at an event attended by family, friends, co-workers and some children.
Levine told The Journal Gazette he has apologized to the woman for his inappropriate remarks and to the judges and others present.
In an email Wednesday to courthouse staff, the Allen County Board of Judges said they found Levine's comments to be inappropriate and that some people found his comments offensive.
The email reminded all courthouse staff that anyone who feels he or she has been harassed has the option to report the conduct.
