NY state police investigating Judge Judy's son

Posted: Updated:

CARMEL, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities are probing the son of TV's Judge Judy - a suburban New York prosecutor already involved in a conflict-of-interest case - for his prosecution of a 2009 county sheriff candidate.

State police Senior Investigator Paul Schneeloch tells The Journal News (http://lohud.us/19UP1Op ) Saturday "there are strong inclinations" the office of Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy might've acted improperly.

Levy's mother is Judy Sheindlin. He declined to comment to the newspaper.

Authorities are looking into allegations Levy improperly prosecuted a 2009 county sheriff candidate for petition signature fraud. They're also probing the plea deal in that case.

Prosecutors are also examining whether Levy's contribution to the defense fund of a friend accused of child-rape created a conflict of interest. Levy's recused himself and has said he's met all ethical standards.

    New York's attorney general has settled a false advertising investigation at Wal-Mart, saying some store personnel were citing a nonexistent "sugar tax" on soda. Investigators say some consumers who complained were falsely told the state has a "sugar tax." They say the markup of more than 16 percent violated state laws.
