Are judges allowed to break laws such as steeling, speeding, and drug use?

This is referring to Judge Judy in the news this morning.

Of course not. A president was almost thrown out of office in this country for malfeasance. The law is the same and is applied the same to everyone. In theory!

They are not allowed to but that doesn't mean that some don't.

Judge Judy is no longer a real Judge. Shes a TV judge which is not the same thing. And no, judges are technically not allowed to break the law. Whether she actually broke the law remains to be seen. There are two sides to every story and her accuser is no innocent princess. Judge Judy also has the legal right to the assumption of innocent until proven guilty. Considering the judge is both rich and famous the accuser could merely be a gold digging glory hog looking to get her fifteen minutes of fame at the judges expense. Who knows until theres a TRIAL?

The acuser's perspective sounds more reliable because she stated threats that were used against her while Judy states an inapropriate quote saying that she didn't owe her a cent. Now if she said she didn't do those things agains the acuser that's where it could go either way.

Look. I cant stand judge Judy. But just because some woman claims threats were made doesnt mean there were. There has to be proof.

They're not above the law. They only interpret and enforce it.
I'd like to think they're not taking advantage of their positions and breaking laws without punishment.

I believe only Legislators (when the Legislature is in order) and Foreign Dignitaries are immune from traffic laws

Technically we are all supposed to be held to the laws of the land and no one is exempt. However, you will see that is not always the case. In the past 2 years I've seen a Judge, police and lawyers walk after being busted smuggling heroin. Multiple polititions have been busted drinking and driving and most don't lose their licences, like you and I would. Its a spit in the face of our legal system! They are basically showing us that with money and connections, you CAN be above the law :(

Judge Judy isn't a judge of the U.S. judicial system, but she plays one on a TV show.
