Former judge banned from Nevada bench for handcuffing lawyer

LAS VEGAS - A former Las Vegas justice of the peace has been barred for life from serving as judge in Nevada for ordering a defense attorney handcuffed when she wouldn't stop arguing to keep a client out of jail.

The Nevada Supreme Court on Monday posted a Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline order censuring Conrad Hafen for courtroom incidents between December 2014 and last May.

That's when he had Deputy Clark County Public Defender Zohra Bakhtary detained. He sentenced her client to jail for theft.
