MONROE – Monroe Town Justice Lurlyn Winchester has been suspended from the bench by the Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court.
Winchester was charged three weeks ago by federal authorities with crimes because she actually lives in Rockland County, not in the Town of Monroe, where she presided as one of two justices.
The one-sentence decision by the court stated Winchester “is suspended, with pay, immediately, from the office of Justice of Monroe Town Court.” She earns $38,332 annually for the part-time job.
Winchester was elected to the bench in 2013.
