ROCK HALL, Md. (AP) - A Maryland probate court judge is facing disciplinary action following an arrest for driving under the influence earlier this year.

The Daily Record reports that the Commission on Judicial Disabilities charged Amy L. Nickerson with violating the Maryland Code of Judicial Conduct in October, a charge that became public Friday after Nickerson filed a response.

The Kent County Orphan’s Court judge was arrested March 9 when she was stopped for speeding. She received probation before judgment in July on a count of driving while impaired. She was also found guilty to reckless and negligent driving.

Nickerson acknowledged all of the allegations and apologized for her conduct. She called the arrest “isolated” and pointed out that she was still re-elected this year. She said she would consent to an appropriate reprimand.
