Updated:CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A Canonsburg judge has resigned from the Court of Common Pleas.
Judge Paul Pozonsky said in a letter to Gov. Tom Corbett that the move is effective the last day of June, but he didn't give a specific reason.
Pozonsky noted in the letter that he has served as a judge for more than 28 years, first as a district court judge.
Last month President Judge Debbie O'Dell Seneca abruptly reassigned Pozonsky to preside only over civil court cases. He had previously carried a heavy criminal caseload.
Seneca made the move after Pozonsky ordered the destruction of evidence in 16 drug cases. Pozonsky vacated the destruction order after prosecutors pointed out that defendants had due process rights regarding their property, but evidence was already destroyed.
