Navajo Nation probationary judge convicted of abusing post

 


FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A Navajo Nation judge was found guilty of abusing his office and could face up to six months in jail after prosecutors said he interfered in a burglary investigation involving his relatives.

The late December conviction of Roy Tso Jr. came months after a bench trial in tribal court.

Prosecutors alleged that Tso showed up at a relative’s home in Shiprock as authorities were searching for items stolen from a storage unit, identified himself as a judge and flashed his credentials.
