Judges found not guilty of traffic ticket fixing


The jury in the federal trial of six Philadelphia Traffic Court judges delivered a verdict of not guilty for some of the co-defendants but convicted four others of perjury.

The federal trial involved what prosecutors called a pervasive system of ticket fixing which benefited the politically connected. Jurors determined that three defendants – Thomasine Tynes, Michael Lowry and Robert Mulgrew were guilty of committing perjury before the federal grand jury. Former judge Willie Singletary was also found guilty of lying to federal agents when questioned about ticket fixing at Philadelphia Traffic Court. Three co-defendants – Michael Sullivan, Robert Moy, and Mark A. Bruno – were found not guilty. Before the case went to trial H. Warren Hogeland, Kenneth Miller, Fortunato Perri, William Hird, and Henry P. Alfano pleaded guilty.
