NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WOWO) – Disciplinary charges have been filed against a New Haven City Court Judge.

The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications filed four counts of misconduct related to Judge Geoff L. Robison acting outside of his judicial role. The Commission alleges he performed outside of his duties, acting as a prosecutor.

The charges allege Judge Robison, who is not a lawyer, permitted the filing and processing of state infraction cases in New Haven City Court when the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office did not authorize the filing.

The Commission also alleges Judge Robison allowed juveniles to resolve infraction cases through a deferral program, which is not allowed.

Judge Robison has 20 days to file an answer to the charges.
