SC admonishes showy RTC judge for social media posts

SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union — The Supreme Court has reprimanded a Regional Trial Court judge for posting his photos on social media displaying his tattoos.

Reprimanded recently by the SC Second Division was La Union RTC Judge Romeo Atillo Jr. The High Court referred to the judge’s conduct as “unbecoming of a judge” who was also warned a repetition of the same may earns more severe sanctions.

The SC reminded the judge “to be more circumspect in his professional and personal dealings in social media.”
