The Georgia Supreme Court publically reprimanded a judge for repeated tardies and high absenteeism on Monday.

Chatham County Recorder’s Court Chief Judge Tammy Stokes received that public sanction from her fellow peers at the Judicial Qualifications Commission. Stokes admitted to being chronically tardy to work and also skipping court more than her peers.

An opinion stated that Stokes was more than an hour late for court several times throughout the year and missed 38 of her scheduled court days in 2017 – she already missed 36 this year.

In September, the Judicial Qualifications Commission director brought formal charges against Stokes.
