Follow The Republic:


A former judge who failed to show up in court to represent a number of his clients was arrested Monday for not showing up at his own hearing. 

Roderick D. McGillivray, who served as Bartholomew County Superior Court 2 judge from 2003 to 2008, was arrested at 4:10 p.m. Monday by deputies from the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department.

McGillivray, 48, of 4065 N. Riverside Drive, was booked into the county jail at 4:32 p.m. on a Bartholomew Circuit Court warrant charging him with failure to appear at a court hearing to show cause, according to both jail and court documents.   

Bond was set at $25,000 surety or $2,500 cash.  As of mid-day Tuesday, McGillivray was still in the jail being held in a special unit away from other jail inmates, Sheriff Mark Gorbett said.
