Md. judge pleads guilty to drunken-driving charges

A Washington County Circuit Court judge has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol in a collision that caused minor injuries to the other driver.

Sixty-eight-year-old William Kennedy Boone III was fined $1,000 Wednesday and sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation.

Judge Robert Wilcox, visiting from Anne Arundel County, said he would consider expunging the conviction if Boone completes his first year of probation successfully.

Boone apologized to the 25-year-old victim and said he accepts full responsibility for sideswiping her car on a city street in November.

Boone had a blood-alcohol level of 0.18 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Boone was appointed in 1997 and must retire at age 70.

Da Judge will be innocent, he ain't so innocent right now but mark my words in this part of the state da judge cannot go to jail. If, only more wer caught in PG County I'd be one happy stamper of justice.

He will get off like the female district attorney of Maryland did back in 2003.

Anyone other than a judge would be fired and lose their retirement benefits. This guy is a thug.

If I ever get a DUI, I don't want special treatment, I want Judge Boone's treatment.
