" A district judge has pleaded guilty to harassing a woman at a Cumberland County hotel.
Douglas Gummo, 42, of Petersburg, was fined $438 for the April 1 incident at the Radisson Penn Harris Hotel in East Pennsboro Township.
Police said Gummo was drunk and wearing only a bed sheet when he repeatedly tried to enter the room of a female guest, who is also a district judge. Gummo is a district judge in Huntingdon County. He and the woman were at the hotel for a conference. Prosecutors dropped charges of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct in exchange for the guilty plea."
No one is immune from the chaos, confusion, and humiliation of alcoholism. As we've seen again and again, alcohol is cunning, baffling, and powerful. Good luck to Judge Gummo, he's young enough that he can make this ridiculous episode a powerful component in his personal story. Of course only Judge Gummo can figure out for himself whether he needs help. But here's a clue: drink = trouble? You might want to take a long hard look at yourself.
