A Delaware County man stirred controversy on Facebook Wednesday afternoon after using racial slurs, claiming to be related to a Delaware County Judge. Greg Wood messaged an African-American individual via Facebook bashing him for his ethnicity, claiming to be related to a well-respected judge.

Wood stated that his relative is Judge Frank T. Hazel, a Senior Judge in Delaware County. “u live in Media, Pa and u know my relative Honorable Frank T Hazel..” Wood continued. “i think im going to enlighten him on the individual that you are off the record..”

Quron Banks is not your average Delaware County man. He is very well known in the community for his involvement in public events, political advocacy and youth mentoring.

Hazel started his career on the bench in 1982 for thirty years, coming to an end in 2012. In January 2012, Judge Hazel assumed Senior Judge status.

Prior to his elevation to the Bench, Judge Hazel served as District Attorney of Delaware County for six years. During his tenure as District Attorney, Judge Hazel served as President of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys’ Association and Chairman of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys’ Association’s Task Force on Wire-tapping and Electronic Surveillance.

We reached out to the Delaware County Office of the District Attorney to find out if Wood is related to Judge Hazel. No comment has been provided yet.
