    Judge Rosini is a good and descent man, he has literally given his life to Law Enforcement in Northumberland County when he could have made much more money in private practice. I am a police officer and have worked many, many cases with Judge Rosini as a District Attorney. I have been with him socially and at work and he has NEVER abused or distorted the system in any way. He has always treated everyone with respect, both defendant and prosecution and has done multitudes for Law Enforcement and Justice for all. Everyone deserves a second chance, even Judges, don’t be so hasty to run a good man up the flagpole that made one mistake in his life until you’ve seen his life of dedicated service. God Bless You Tony Rosini! Northumberland County and Pennsylvania is a better place to live thanks to your selfless life of service! How many Democrats do you ever see appointed to a Judgeship by a Republican Governor? That in itself speaks volumes, and he’s the only Democrat that I ever voted for!

    It’s just a matter of time…..I would wager this guy has a history of this. I wonder how many DUI’s he prosecuted or presided over?

    Come on, everyone knows what will happen, a slap on the wrist or some oddball reason and the charges will be dropped, this is PA, equal justice died a long time ago.
