Wanda Molina, the New Jersey chief municipal judge at the center of a ticket-fixing scandal that caused her and three other judges to lose their jobs and face criminal charges, has been sentenced to 364 days in jail, though she may be able to avoid hard time. A judge imposed a three-year probationary term to be served first, and at the end of it, Molina can apply to vacate the prison sentence. Molina had admitted that she caused eight parking tickets issued to her live-in companion to be dismissed.
