IT'S A MYSTERY why the feds didn't charge former Traffic Court Administrative Judge Bernice A. DeAngelis in the alleged ticket-fixing case.
According to a November 2012 report by the risk-management firm Chadwick Associates, DeAngelis was a key player in the ticket-fixing culture and in requests for "consideration."
H. Warren Hogeland, a former Bucks County district judge who at times heard Traffic Court cases, told Chadwick investigators that DeAngelis said to him on his first day in Traffic Court in 2006: "This is Philadelphia. We do things a lot different in Philadelphia. Everything you've learned, throw out the window, because this is what we do down here."
