Former Parole Judge Admits To Socking Lawyer In Drunken Rage At Chelsea Party

A hotheaded former state parole judge admitted to clocking a Legal Aid lawyer after a party last year and agreed to anger management treatment in a plea deal.

Robert Beltrani, 54, copped to third-degree assault in Manhattan Criminal Court in a plea proceeding Monday. He agreed to take an anger management course and 10 days community service for the Oct. 20, 2016, booze-fueled spat on W. 18th St. in Chelsea.

If he complies with the terms, the conviction will get reduced to a harassment violation at a later date.

Beltrani and public defender Sam Roberts were at the same party — attended by Legal Aid attorneys and others in the justice system — at an event space on W. 18th St.

Roberts, who met Beltrani at the party for the first time, previously told the Daily News he got the sense the judge didn’t like him. But, he added, there was no hostility between the two.

The sucker punch came as Beltrani and Roberts, then 48, were talking on the sidewalk outside after the party, with Roberts claiming it was unprovoked.

Sources told the Daily News an aggressive Beltrani mouthed off to Roberts before cold-cocking him in a shocking dust-up caught on security video.

The punch knocked Roberts unconscious and sent him to the hospital, where he was treated for injuries including a black eye and separated shoulder.

Drunken judge who sucker-punched Legal Aid lawyer charged

After striking Roberts, the 260-pound Beltrani, who was visibly drunk, lost his balance and fell on top of him, sources said. He then got up and walked away.

“I did hit Mr. Roberts,” Beltrani admitted in court Monday as part of the deal.

He and his attorney refused to comment after the proceeding.

Beltrani was fired by the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision on Oct. 31 after an administrative proceeding “based on his failure to cooperate in a departmental internal investigation and as a result of serious off-duty conduct,” the agency said in a statement.

Beltrani was based on Rikers Island, where he heard parole violation cases since April 2011. His salary was $98,669.

“I think the plea arrangement was very fair, and I hope Mr. Beltrani gets the help that he needs,” Roberts said Monday.
