Common Pleas Judge Roger Binette has become the first Erie County judge since 1989 to issue a court order to set his budget, a move that didn't sit well with the Erie County Commissioners.

Binette emphasized that his budget includes the 10 percent budget reduction requested by the commissioners.

But commissioners criticized him for raising the pay of his two magistrates by $7,000 apiece and compared him to a quarterback deserting his team during a football game.
