Erie third ward District Judge Tom Carney will receive a reprimand from the Pennsylvnia Court of Judicial Discipline.

That's the ruling following an hour long hearing before the board today.

The State Supreme Court ordered the Court of Judicial Discipline to reconsider its dismissal of ethics violations against Carney in a road rage incident in 2009.

Carney was returning from Pittsburgh when another motorist says he brandished a gun at him from his moving car.

Carney entered a guilty plea and paid the fine for the criminal charge, and has been re -elected to his seat in the 3rd ward court.
