Judge charged with DUI no longer presiding over DUI cases

READING, Pa. - A Berks County magisterial district judge has had her caseload lightened.

Judge Kyley Scott, who was charged last week with driving under the influence, is no longer permitted to preside over DUI cases.

Those cases have been reassigned to District Judge Thomas Xavios, per an order from Berks County President Judge Paul Yatron, who oversees the county's magisterial district court system.

Scott, the daughter of Reading Mayor Wally Scott, was arrested after a traffic stop in the city on April 2. Police said she had just left a bar in Muhlenberg Township and was driving with a blood alcohol level of .188 percent, more than twice the legal driving limit in Pennsylvania.
