Judge Ron Arnoni of Bethel Park, PA; ethical dwarf


The state of Arkansas presented Edwin Keaton with a law license in 1977 after he graduated from the University of Arkansas Law School.


In April 2014, Gov. Tom Corbett was duped into appointing Ronnie as a Magisterial Court judge in Bethel Park, Maryland. Ronnie wasn’t appointed because he was the most qualifed person in the greater Pittsburgh area. He was appointed because he had proved to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


In early May 2015, a Bethel Park School Board member filed an ethics compliant with the Judicial Conduct Board accusing Ronnie of unethical conduct during his primary campaign to keep his job. (Aaron Aupperlee)


The complaint states that Ronnie asked Bethel Park’s superintendant to raise the pay of school police officer Jim Modrak in an effort to keep him from running in the primary election against Ronnie.


In denying the allegations of a payoff to his electoral opponent, Ronnie laughingly said in part:

  • “You can see this is just a witch hunt” by Modrak of Bethel Park and his supporters.”
  • “I can tell you matter-of-factly, everything I've done in this campaign and on the bench has been with the highest integrity and professionalism.”

It’s obvious that Ronnie missed his calling as a standup comedian.


One thing we can be sure of, Ronnie will likely do anything to retain a job that pays an annual salary of $88,000 plus benefits.


All that remains now is to see if the enablers of the Judicial Misfits sitting on the Judicial Conduct Board take any action against Ronnie.


As we speak (ca. June 2015), Ronnie continues to sit as a Magisterial District Court judge in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania.
