A New York Judge has been accused of burglary after he was reportedly caught in the act of illegally entering the home of a woman who previously worked as an intern for him in order to steal the panties from her laundry.

Suffolk County Republican District Court Judge Robert Cicale formerly worked as a town attorney, and during that time he hired a 23-year-old woman who provided him with intern services. Cicale and his ex-intern are both neighbors and residents of Long Island.

On April 29 the woman arrived at her home and allegedly heard a strange noise. The woman was alone and she went to investigate the sound when she noticed a man running away from her residence. She made a phone call to her mother to tell her what had happened and a call was placed to 911 to report the incident.

A Councilman from Plainfield, New Jersey was arrested on December 9 for allegations that he was driving under the influence of alcohol after a series of curious events took place during and after he struck a tree in front of his home.
