By Globe Staff
A Superior Court judge is facing a charge of driving under the influence after being arrested Wednesday in Lexington, Middlesex County prosecutors said.
Christine M. McEvoy, 58, of Belmont was arraigned in Concord District Thursday. McEvoy waived her appearance and a plea of not guilty was entered on her behalf, said Corey Welford, a spokesman for the Middlesex district attorney's office.
A pretrial conference has been slated for May 8.
McEvoy's attorney, William H. Kettlewell, issued a statement saying that McEvoy "has the greatest respect for the institution of the court. She deeply regrets the fact that her actions may have cast the court in an unfavorable light and intends to deal with the pending case as swiftly as possible."
