A San Diego judge has been charged with willful misconduct for allegedly videotaping courtroom proceedings to promote herself for a role on a TV show starring a judge. An ethics commission cites dozens of remarks Judge DeAnn Salcido made from the bench -- some filmed and some not -- which suggest she was channeling an off-color Judge Judy. Salcido repeatedly got participation from her courtroom audience, including having them say "woo woo woo" after accusing a defendant of being high on marijuana.
