Judges Brad Jacobs and Sabrina Bell have been reinstated after a 30-day suspension without pay.

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) — Two judges who were involved in a shooting at a downtown Indianapolis White Castle in May have been reinstated after being suspended for 30 days without pay.

Our newsgathering partners at the News and Tribune report Clark County Circuit Court No. 2 Judge Brad Jacobs and Crawford Circuit Judge Sabrina Bell were reinstated Monday.

Their suspensions were the punishment for violating two codes of conduct when they got into an altercation with a group of people while in Indianapolis for a work conference.

Clark County Circuit Court No. 1 Judge Andrew Adams was also involved in the incident. He received a 60-day suspension and is expected to be reinstated Jan. 13.

Adams previously pleaded guilty to battery resulting in bodily injury. Neither Jacobs nor Bell were criminally charged.
