NY Supreme Court Justice Carl Landicino Charged with DWI

New York Supreme Court Justice Charged with DWI

A member of New York State’s highest court was charged with drunk driving last week after swerving past an unmarked police car. Supreme Court Justice Carl Landicino, 47, was stopped by police at 4:06 p.m. on Interstate 87 in Menands last Thursday. According to police, the drunken judge failed field sobriety tests and refused to submit to an Alco-Sensor Test which would have measured his blood alcohol levels. In addition to the charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI), Landicino was also charged with speeding, following too closely, and for an unsafe lane change. His grey BMW was impounded.

Landicino served as personal counsel to scandal-ridden Assemblyman Vito Lopez. Lopez helped Landicino land the position as Kings County Supreme Court justice, earning a cool $136,700 annually. Landicino lives in Yorktown Heights, a Westchester suburb with an annual household income of one person averaging $75,427. Landicino has faced mounting criticism for his work and his connections over the years. His job with the Democratic Party in Brooklyn was to allegedly “sue candidates Lopez wanted to keep off the ballot.” Landicino represented Supreme Court justice Jack Battaglia, who sued in a $1 million lawsuit over a slip-and-fall that happened when he fell on a recently mopped floor in his own courthouse. Landicino will serve as a judge until 2025, and originally won the seat with 15.6% of the vote. He was released on his own recognizance after his arraignment.
