MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Supreme Court has upheld a ban prohibiting a former assistant judge from holding a judicial office for life.

The former Windham County side judge, Paul Kane, was reprimanded by the Vermont Judicial Conduct Board this spring for misusing the finances of his uncle’s second wife. Kane had control over her finances after he was granted power of attorney in 2010. She died in 2014.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2szEkhD ) that the Vermont Supreme Court said Kane violated at least four judicial canons or laws.

Kane resigned from his term as assistant judge earlier this year.

His attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
