“Shame on Judge Denis Boyle for allowing this to happen,” he said. “The people of the Bronx won’t be safe as long as he’s on the bench.”
Boyle, a Bronx Supreme Court justice, has come under fire in the past amid claims that he’s overly lenient, particularly with young defendants.
In a statement Thursday, state court officials said that anger is misdirected.
“The ire that the PBA president is projecting on the judge, who is following the law, should be directed at the individuals who promulgate those laws,” Lucian Chalfen, spokesman for the state Office of Court Administration, said in an email.
