O’Scanlon seeks Troiano removal

Monmouth senator calls judge rape comments ‘truly abhorant’

By David Wildstein, July 08 2019 3:10 pm

State Sen. Declan O’Scanlon (R-Little Silver) wants Superior Court Judge James Troiano gone.

“Judge Troiano’s comments are truly abhorrent and clearly highlight the fact that he needs to be removed immediately by the Supreme Court,” O’Scanlon said. “We simply cannot stand by and allow a sitting judge to tell a 16-year-old sexual assault survivor that she doesn’t deserve justice because her attacker might get into a ‘good college.”

A state appellate court overturned Troiano’s ruling not to charge a 16-year-old alleged rapist as an adult since he had good grades and test scores and game from a good family.

“The Supreme Court has the ability to remove a judge for misconduct in office, or conduct evidencing unfitness for judicial office. Judge Troiano’s disturbing and biased comments from the bench are a glaringly obvious display of his unfitness for judicial office.”
