Kelly Ballentine

HARRISBURG, PA (WPMT) The Pennsylvania Court of Judicial Discipline rules that Lancaster City Magisterial District Judge Kelly Ballentine has violated her probation and is suspended without pay. However the Court said the suspension will not affect her benefits.

The ruling resulted from a petition by the Judicial Conduct Board recommending that Ballentine be suspended as a result of her conviction for conducting sales without a license while operating her private business and failure to file individual tax returns for 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Ballentine has been a district judge since 2006.  She was suspended from February 22, 2012 through May 31, 2013 and resumed her duties on June 1, 2013. She is currently serving her second six year term
