Littleton fires judge who issued warrant for overdue DVD
The City Council fired longtime Municipal Judge James Kimmel on Tuesday night after he issued an arrest warrant for a teenager who had an overdue $30 DVD from a local library.
Council members had offered Kimmel a chance to resign and receive a severance package. But when he refused, they said they had little choice but to let him go.
"I'm disappointed and saddened the situation has reached this stage," Councilman Bruce Stahlman said.
