A rural Ohio judge was suspended for one year without pay by the Ohio Supreme Court after he ordered a non-disruptive woman in the courtroom gallery to be drug tested and held in custody until she complied.

Judge Mark Repp, who serves as the sole judge of the Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court in Seneca County, Ohio, was suspended from practicing law for one year, a sanction that was recommended to the Supreme Court by the Board of Professional Conduct.
