What's the point in marrying a judge if you can't get your tickets fixed?

This reminds me.. What ever happened to that one piece of shiat judge from.. Texas, I think, but I could be wrong.. That was caught on camera a few months back beating his daughter?

IIRC, he was even some sort of family/domestic judge that presided over abuse cases. I can't find anything on him... My Google-fu is weak today.

"The Michigan Supreme Court removed Justin from office on January 27, upon recommendation of the Judicial Tenure Commission, for his alleged role in these and other matters of judicial misconduct."

Yes. do go on...

/thanks, journalists!

It's Jackson. The place is horrible. Worst town in MI I've ever been in. It's not entirely surprising.

If it makes you feel any better, in my town(about 30 miles from Jackson), the police chiefs son was arrested with heroin, and the original judge that was going to hear the case disqualified herself because she's friends with the kids parents.

So now one of his judge friends will dismiss these charges?

Judge J. Kirby: I know what it means. I went to law school.
Sheldon Cooper: And yet you wound up in traffic court.

Sheldon Cooper: I would like to point out that I am at the top of my profession, while you are at the kiddie table of yours.

If Michigan is anything like the Va judicial system, he's screwed. He may squeak by on criminal charges, but the state bar can permanently revoke his ability to practice law without a guilty charge. This stuff is actually taken very seriously.

"On Father's Day weekend, he called me fat because he took me to the gym and he tried to force me to work out, and then he called me fat."

He got caught and charged, didn't he? That's GOOD news. It means someone out there isn't putting up with this shiat.

Apparently he forgot only 'cops' can fix tickets!

What's the point of being a judge if you can't do little favors for your friends?

I'm sure every Judge's arsehole puckered up tightly after reading this.

Big deal.

five years in prison and a $10,000 fine

Sheesh.

All tickets are BS. Anyone getting out of one for any reason is good news to me.

The one for defective equipment I could ignore.
He would be easily able to determine if the problem with his wife's car was fixed.

I was too distracted by their almost fanatical devotion to the Pope to notice.

Wow, someone REALLY had it in for this judge. A political opponent? (Are judges elected in MI?) I'm all for corrupt judges getting punished in proportion to their crimes... but becoming a felon and time in PMTIA prison for dismissing traffic tickets? This is what fines, censures, and/or firings were made for. And he was already stuck on traffic court anyway, pretty much the lowliest courtroom in the building.

I'd understand if he took money, sex, etc, but many traffic tickets are already dismissed or vastly reduced at arraignment anyway, it's small fry.
