U.S. Tv lawmaker Judge Judy's son has been accused of attempting to interfere in the investigation of a child rape case.
Adam Levy, the District Attorney for New York's Putnam County, stands accused of trying to help his trainer pal Alexandru Hossu, who was arrested last week (begs18Mar12) over allegations he twice raped a 12-year-old girl in 2010.
Donald Smith, the local sheriff presiding over the investigation, tells the Associated Press, "He (Levy) is apparently trying to influence and affect the investigation, which could be perceived as an ethical violation of his official duties and perhaps even as an attempt to undermine it.
"In my view, Mr. Levy's comments and actions would seem to suggest that, if he could have his own way, Mr. Hossu 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."
Levy has denied any wrongdoing, stating, "My office acted properly in every aspect of the investigation."
His Tv star mother, real name Judy Sheindlin, has also released a statement to UsMagazine.com, which reads, "The sole focus of this story should be the investigation as to whether a young girl was the victim of a very serious crime. Shifting that focus to celebrity does the justice system a grave disservice."
