Supreme Court Justice Joseph S. Alessandro of the Ninth Judicial District in New York and his brother, Bronx Civil Court Judge Francis M. Alessandro, should be removed from office for failing to repay on time a $250,000 loan made to one of Joseph Alessandro’s campaigns and for misstating their financial holdings and obligations on disclosure forms and loan applications, the Commission on Judicial Conduct recommended in two decisions made public Monday.

Both brothers “irretrievably” lost the public’s trust through deceptive financial dealings that began in August 2003, when Joseph Alessandro accepted the loan from a political backer during his campaign for Westchester County Court judge. Both co-signed for the loan, which Joseph Alessandro promised to repay in July 2004.
