Former judge sent to prison

Posted:

MUSCATINE (KWWL) -- A former Muscatine County judge convicted of drunken driving three times is back in prison for violating his parole again.

James Weaver was ordered back to prison last week.

The Iowa Board of Parole will determine how long he will remain in custody.

Weaver was arrested June 16 at his home in Davenport. Officers were sent to his home for a safety check, and they found him intoxicated.

Weaver had been paroled on June 9, and his parole conditions prohibit drinking alcohol.

It was the second time Weaver has violated his parole since he pleaded guilty in August 2009 to a third offense of drunken driving.

Weaver's other convictions were in 2002 and 2004. He was an associate judge from 1982 to 2004.
