His pockets were packed with purloined panties.
More disturbing details emerged Friday about the pervy Long Island judge accused as a serial underwear snatcher after his arrest for raiding the hamper of an East Islip neighbor.
Robert Cicale, when busted for grabbing the undies of his 23-year-old former intern, was carrying a raincoat — its pockets filled with additional panties, authorities said.
“He indicated in his confession that he has urges to steal women's underwear,” said Nassau County District Attorney Tim Sini. “It's a strange set of facts.”
Prosecutors, without identifying anyone, said the investigation had turned up five victims of the injudicious Cicale.
Cicale, who is married with three kids, ages 13, 11 and 9, pleaded not guilty to the charges. He was held on $50,000 bond.
“His reputation throughout the court is stellar,” said defense attorney David Wexler. “Every judge, every lawyer, respects him.”
