A man was charged with assaulting his mother - a 79 YO Philadelphia Common Pleas judge, and when a female reporter went to his home for comment, he flashed her.
Police said Judge Lisa Richette was assaulted Tuesday by her son, 48-year-old Lawrence Richette, in a domestic dispute at the judge's home.
The judge received treatment of a cut above her eye at Jefferson Hospital. It required four stitches.
When a reporter went to Lawrence Richette's home Wednesday afternoon, he opened the door in a robe, asked if the cameras were rolling and flashed the female reporter and a photojournalist for a few seconds. He closed his robe and said, "That's what I think of TV news."
