3-4-14

WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — A municipal judge in New Jersey is facing voter fraud charges for allegedly casting ballots in a town he does not live in.

The Middlesex County prosecutor’s office says Spencer Robbins surrendered to authorities on Tuesday at a courthouse in New Brunswick.

The 62-year-old Chatham resident faces two counts of voter fraud for allegedly casting votes during two elections in Woodbridge, where he has an office.

Robbins served as a judge in Woodbridge, Sayreville and South Plainfield.

He has resigned from his positions as a municipal judge. He has been released on his own recognizance.

Prosecutors say Robbins voted in a Woodbridge school election on April 20, 2010, and in a general election in Woodbridge on November 2, 2010.

A message left for his attorney was not immediately returned.
