Texas judge busted for drunk driving pleads for special treatment: 'You are going to ruin my life'

A Texas appeals court judge appealed for some special treatment when she was busted for drunk driving over the weekend.

Justice Nora Longoria was going 69 mph in her Lexus in a 55-mph zone when she was stopped by cops in McAllen just after 1 a.m. on Saturday morning, according to court records obtained by the Valley Morning Star.

As she slurred her words, Longoria begged the officers for leniency even though she admitted she had five beers that evening, the last one three hours before getting behind the wheel.

“Please let me go home," she said, according to the Valley Morning Star. "I live a couple of miles away ... you are going to ruin my life. I worked hard for 25 years to be where I am today."

In addition, Longoria, 49, refused to let cops put handcuffs on her until they threatened her with a charge of resisting arrest, according to the documents.

  1. Obviously, she really needs to be removed from office. This is not the behavior of a judge or member of a court. Then again these 'public officials' have this attitude that they are above the law.

  2. If it was a guy named Jose Alvarez or a woman named Coinda Vargas, the outcome would be VERY different, especially in Texas.

    Apply the law equally.

    About one of the few times the 'police' are doing their jobs. Lock her ass up. Curious to know, how many lives has she ruined during her tenure as a judge?

  4. In the side profile I'm seeing a dried, white substance around the edge of her mouth - is this a photographic anomaly?

  5. Texas Judges have a special license plate that says "State Judge" on it which usually makes them immune from being stopped. Maybe she was not in the car with those plates.

  6. Oh but this IS the behavior of judges, - which is all too common a behavior. Public officials think they are above the law because they all protect each other. Rarely do we see prosecution of corrupt judges, police or other officials. They have given themselves immunity from the law.
