Defense: Ex-Pa. judge cooperating in coke case

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The attorney for a former western Pennsylvania judge charged with stealing cocaine out of evidence in cases he handled says the judge is cooperating with investigators.

Attorney Robert Del Greco Jr. wouldn’t comment on the accusations themselves, but says former Washington County Judge Paul Pozonsky resigned last year to avoid disrespecting citizens or disrupting the county’s bench.

The judge will next be in court June 13, but Del Greco says that preliminary hearing may be delayed after he asks the court to appoint an out-of-county judge to the case.
