Let's talk "don'ts"....

The attorney for a Maryland judge who deflated the tire of a courthouse employee says his client would accept a public reprimand from state officials.

Charles County Circuit Court Judge Robert C. Nalley pleaded guilty in October to a misdemeanor charge of vehicle tampering. The state Commission on Judicial Disabilities is deciding whether Nalley should face sanctions.

Nalley's lawyer, William Brennan, filed papers with the commission on Friday, saying a private reprimand is appropriate, but Nalley also would consent to a public reprimand.

The commission has not set a date for a hearing on the issue.

Brennan says Nalley is "extremely remorseful" about his actions in the Aug. 10 incident. The courthouse employee had been parked in a restricted area.
