UK sacks three judges for watching porn in office

3/18/2015 12:17:23 AM

London: Three judges have been sacked from their posts after they were found to be allegedly viewing pornography on official IT equipment at work here.

The Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) informed that their behaviour is “wholly unacceptable”, whereas a fourth judge who was also to be involved has resigned from the service.

District Judge Timothy Bowles from Romford County Court, London Immigration Judge Warren Grant and deputy district judge and Recorder Peter Bullock, who worked on the North Eastern Circuit, have been removed from office. Recorder Andrew Maw, who worked in the Midlands Region, resigned in September, aged 65, before the disciplinary process ended.

A JCIO spokesman said: “The Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice were satisfied that the material did not include images of children or any other illegal content, but concluded that this was an inexcusable misuse of their judicial IT accounts and wholly unacceptable conduct for a judicial office-holder.”
