Judge reprimanded by judiciary court

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Court of the Judiciary has reprimanded a Bedford County judge for his handling of a juvenile case.

The disciplinary court said Tuesday that Judge Charles Rich did not submit findings of fact, delaying an appeal in the case.

The court also said Rich recused himself from the case, but still signed orders including one in July authorizing an attachment and incarceration for failure to pay child support.

Rich did not return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking comment on the reprimand.
