JUDGE JUDY’S son, Adam Levy, is being accused of interfering in a child rape case to help his personal trainer and old roommate, who is the suspect.
“He is apparently trying to influence and affect the investigation,” Sheriff Donald Smith said about Judge Judy’s son who is a suburban district attorney.
Levy has accused the sheriff of making “unfounded allegations and misstatements.” Levy said he recused himself as soon as he learned that the suspect, “who my family had known for years,” was under investigation.
“In my view, Mr. Levy’s comments and actions would seem to suggest that, if he could have his own way, Mr. Hossu (the suspect) would never have been brought to justice for his crime and Mr. Levy’s relationship with him would never have been brought to the light of public scrutiny,” the sheriff said.
“The sole focus of this story should be the investigation as to whether a young girl was the victim of a very serious crime,” Judge Judy said Tuesday through spokesman Gary Rosen.
