A New Jersey Superior Court judge has been charged with violating ethics rules and the judiciary's Internet policy by sending romantic e-mails to a former law clerk and trying to get her a job with the Public Defender's Office. In a complaint made public March 6, the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct alleges Lawrence DeBello kept sending intimate e-mails even after his assignment judge confronted him about them in December 2007.
