This woman began a sexual relationship with a 19 year old that she represented when she was a public defender then she became a judge and still continued her inappropriate relationship with this young man. This woman obviously feels like she is above the law. In my eyes she is NOT a victim she's a shame especially to women.
Audrey Creighton I really hope you learned a big lesson here and I hope you drown in humiliation. I don't care how long you went to school, I don't care how long you served as a public defender, I don't care if you're Hispanic. What you did was WRONG and immoral. Your judgement and view of power should really be questioned by the people who appointed you as a judge

For any of those still so naïve and/or ignorant as to think that a judge's conduct off the bench bears no relation to what she does on the bench, please pay attention. The following blog by www.myrealitylaw.org most axiomatically articulated the danger of having someone such as Creighton on the bench:

Montgomery County, Maryland Circuit Court Judge Audrey Creighton was kidnapped last week by her boyfriend, Rickley Joshua Senning. Senning, who has a rap sheet which includes convictions for burglary, assault, theft, and firearms violations, snatched the judge right from her home which, by the way, was also his home. Oh yes, one more detail, the judge is 53 years old; Senning is 24. They met when she was employed by the Public Defenders Office and he was her criminal client. In taking out a restraining order against Senning, Judge Creighton described him as her “intimate partner”.

The American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct prohibit a lawyer from having “sexual relations with a client unless a consensual sexual relationship existed between them when the client-lawyer relationship commenced”. Most states have adopted this rule or something analogous. Presumably, Creighton and Senning did not have a consensual relationship prior to his becoming her client. Senning was 19 at the time; the future judge was 48.

The first question to be addressed from this matter is: what the hell was Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley thinking when he appointed Creighton to the bench? This, in turn, involves the subsidiary question: What kind of vetting was done before Creighton was given the awesome responsibility to make decisions effecting the lives of litigants who come before her? It is difficult to believe that the Creighton/Senning affair was a total secret. Something like that is bound to get out and, once it’s out, it is way out. Everybody knows about it and soon. Was Creighton’s unprofessional conduct overlooked or ignored by those trusted with the responsibility of assuring the integrity of judicial appointments? Or, was the process so inadequate that this lapse of professional judgment was missed? Either way, it is an embarrassment to the judiciary.

If there is one quality folks want from their judges, it is judgment. Note the similar root word. This is not a linguistic accident. Commencing an intimate relationship with a burglar/thief three decades one’s junior does not speak well of one’s judgment. It is especially troubling for a judge.

Let us examine the potential ramifications of a judge having an intimate relationship with a criminal. First, there is the possibility of blackmail. The judge may, understandably, want to keep the affair quiet. So, she may be asked to do judicial favors as a quid pro quo. Then, there is the issue of conflict of interest. If the judge becomes aware of a secret grand jury investigation involving her lover or one of his associates, can the judge be trusted not to spill the beans and compromise the investigation? Also, if the criminal has access to a judge, the criminal has access to any court records the judge has in her possession. Some of those records are sealed with good reason. Lest someone thinks love conquers all, a judge/criminal romance is a very bad idea.

Voters in Montgomery County, Maryland need to utilize good common sense when it comes time to vote for the judiciary in November. The history surrounding Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Audrey Creighton and her intimate involvement with a former client, Rickley Senning, who she represented as his public defender, is beyond salacious. Her association with a convict and the fact he was admittedly living in her home and engaged in an intimate relationship with her not only smacks of unethical conduct for a judge but also points to a serious conflict of interest. Her deceitful response to the police in which she stated her relationship was "platonic" and her later admission,when filing for a protective order, that it was intimate causes one to pause about her association with an ex-con places her in a vulnerable and compromising position in significant ways. As a judge, her behavior and actions should be beyond reproach. However, it is apparent her actions have demonstrated flawed judgment which is of serious concern when she is in a position to make serious decisions about the fate of others lives when they stand before her in a courtroom. In a public role, her personal life becomes open to scrutiny of both her character and integrity. Though Daniel Patrick Connell,an attorney,may not have gone through a formal judicial vetting process,he served as a Marine which speaks volumes in regard to meeting rigorous standards of conduct along with possessing character and integrity. Creighton,on the other hand,who was initially selected by Governor O’Malley (D-MD) and was supposedly vetted, has failed to provide a good example of that process and draws into question the depth and quality surrounding it. Creighton appears to be a poor choice to continue in her role as a Circuit Court judge. The honorable thing for her to do would be to turn in her resignation. If she fails to do that, voters in Montgomery County should wisely bid her farewell. ***Karen L. Bune is a national criminal justice consultant and an adjunct profess at two universities in VA.

As an alumnus of American University and a 2011 AU alumni award recipient, as a professional with a long career in the criminal justice system, and as an Adjunct Professor at two universities, I am appalled at the behavior of Montgomery County, Maryland Judge Audrey Creighton. Her association with a convicted felon, Rickley Senning, who she represented as a public defender coupled with her live-in, intimate relationship with him is outrageous.

Allegedly, she is the victim of kidnapping and assault by the 24-year-old convict. Though she may have been victimized and undeservedly so, she precipitated her own victimization by her egregiously poor choice of association. The conflicting versions regarding her relationship with Senning that she relayed to the police and to the Commissioner, when she was seeking a protective order, cast serious doubt on her veracity.

Creighton’s conduct clearly violates the ethical standards that are relevant to her position on the bench. Moreover, she has demonstrated excessively poor judgment combined with a total lack of common sense.

Creighton is also a disgrace to American University’s Washington College of Law, and she tarnishes the reputation of the university with her behavior. She is no model to emulate and certainly doesn't need to be teaching aspiring law students. With her marked demonstration of excessively poor judgment, it is disconcerting to realize that she decides the fate of others lives much less tries to instill knowledge and principles to American University law students when, obviously, she lacks them herself.

Actions speak louder than words. Creighton’s actions have proven she is a disgrace to the legal profession, to the judiciary, to the criminal justice system as a whole and to American University. Undeniably, she leaves a black mark on the reputation of all these entities.

With an upcoming primary election on June 24, 2014 in which voters in Montgomery County must cast their vote for a judicial candidate, they need to oust Creighton off the bench and put her out to pasture rather than elect her for a 15-year term. Her actions have produced serious consequences and cast tremendous doubt on her ability to serve. She needs to go.

Had her for a trial while she was on the D.Ct. bench. She lacked any basic understanding of the applicable law, did not understand basic trial mechanics, and actually announced her ruling before the end of the trial. She was very likable and I have nothing against her personally. Based on what I have seen, there were better choices for the bench. She should probably return to private practice, yet somehow managed to get an appointment to the Circuit Court bench. Go figure.

Not even a fig-leaf of fairness. In a case which opposition insurance company lawyer refused to provide discovery or answer interrogatories, a motion to compel and/or for sanctions (which inexplicably had not been ruled upon for nearly a year) and a renewed motion in the interim, were filed. On the day of the trial Judge Creighton refused to provide any remedy whatsoever to the outstanding motions, or even to reschedule the trial date until after compliance with discovery, because "the matter's already set-in for trial." Her verdict (surprise, surprise) went on to reward the defendant's insurance company (their lawyer even joked during recess that the "fix was in") despite overwhelming photographic evidence and testimony to the contrary.
As author Brian Khan recently pointed out, when not only politicians but judges are allowed to receive gifts in unlimited amounts, how can a litigant really expect any justice when he goes up against deep-pocketed corporations and insurance companies?
The problem of corruptible judges such as Creighton is symptomatic of deeper problems within the judicial system, particularly so when the judiciary fails to police their own.

Not the brightest bulb on the bench. In District Court, whenever a decision was required, she would announce a recess, as if to make a call from chambers to whoever was advising her. When returning to the bench, more often than not, still she couldn't get it right. How did she ever get to be a judge?

Judge Audrey Creighton must resign. Anyone who exhibits the kind of unconscionable, predatory behavior that she has shown via her relationship with Ricky Senning is in desperate need of psychiatric care.

Indisputably, Judge Creighton does not possess good judgment; ergo, she should not be in a position of power where she is able to determine other peoples' fates. She must step down. Period.

No excuses. She lied on an official police report; she harbored a violent criminal; she failed to recuse herself and she engages in judicial retaliation against those Marylanders who dare call her out on her criminality,

Can you people please try to seem educated? For those writing nasty things about this judge, do you not have nothing better to do? This website was created for people to voice their opinion on how a judge does their job in courts or in your cases. This is NOT a forum for people to place their opinion on her personal life. And for the person or group that posts daily about Judge Creighton, get a LIFE!

Not only are you annoying, you can not compose a proper sentence if your life depended on it. Just by the way you write, its more than clear that you are uneducated and lack class. To Shelly and all those negative people, get a life. If you feel like you were screwed over by her, then write about what bad things she did in your judgment and/or case, but please be mature.

No one is perfect, nor is this judge, much less you negative people. Her personal life is for her to deal with, not anyone else. I don't care if my comment gets removed, I just hope those ignorant people writing negative things read this.
