Columbus, OH (NOV. 29, 2016) ~ USA -- Knife weilding suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan was almost immediately shot by OSU police officer Alan Horujko. Horujko was immediately hailed as a hero by mainstream media. Horujko is perhaps a hero for ending a serious threat. However, it appears that mainstream media is not telling the entire story. Most significantly, several of the students injured during the attack were injured by Horujko’s poor marksmanship, not by Artan’s knife.

"Murder, Rape, Lies, & Cover-ups!"


OAKLAND, Calif. -- (WCJB) ~ United States California officials fear dozens may have died in a massive fire that swept through an Oakland warehouse where a concert was taking place Friday night. Nine people have been confirmed dead, and dozens of others remain missing, officials said. In a news conference Saturday, authorities said they expected the death toll to rise, but they did not know by how much. “We’re expecting the worst — maybe a couple dozen victims here,” Sgt. Ray Kelly, spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters. “We did not have a lot of victims go to the hospital,” Kelly said. “It appears that people either made it out, or they didn’t make it out.”

EL CENTRO, CA (WCJB) ~ United States The El Centro Police Department said it's investigating a video that shows officers using force on a suspect who put several people in danger Tuesday afternoon. The video shows officers beating 23-year-old Elizardo Saenz, an El Centro resident. It also shows a K-9 police dog attacking Saenz. (Click here for video)


Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)


New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)


Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)


Brooklyn, NY (WCJB) ~ United States -- When an unmarked police car drove very close to mailman Glenn Grays in Brooklyn, Grays shouted at the car.

New York ~ United States -- Opening statements and testimony began this week in the long-awaited trial of New York City police officer Peter Liang for the killing of Akai Gurley, an unarmed 28-year-old African-American man walking down the stairs in his apartment building, part of the Louis H. Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. As Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Marc Fliedner put it, opening the prosecution’s case, “Akai Gurley is dead today because he crossed paths with Peter Liang.” Liang was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on manslaughter and other charges last February, and both prosecution and defense agree on the immediate events that led to Gurley’s death.(Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Brooklyn, NY -- A newly-released surveillance video (Click here for video) contradicts an undercover NYPD police officer who arrested four people in Brooklyn for allegedly trying to rob him on Dec. 26, 2015, according to a defense lawyer. Jean Scott, 33; Peterson Duplan, 28; Ricardi Joseph, 29; and Samantha Dabel, 24, said that they were approached by a man who tried to buy drugs from them at a hardware store. The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Forth Worth, TX -- The mother of ‘affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch was ordered released from a Tarrant County jail cell after a bond hearing this afternoon. She may be leaving the jail soon. Judge Wayne Salvant ordered her bond reduced to $75,000 with several conditions. The conditions include weekly visits with the Community Supervisions and Corrections Department of Tarrant County. She is also not to consume alcoholic beverages or use social media. “Let’s look at it for what it is, I understand everyone is concerned and there is outrage in the community… but as a judge I have to look at the law,” said Judge Salvant. Couch and her lawyers were present at a 2 p.m. bond hearing at the Tarrant County Justice Center hoping to have her bond reduced. It was originally set at $1 million since she was charged with Hindering Apprehension of a Felon. (Click here for video)

Salt Lake City, Utah -- Exactly one year after a man was shot and killed during an altercation with a Salt Lake City Police Department officer, a former Davis County Sheriff says new video (Click here for video)footage indicates the officer's actions may not have been justified.

Philadelphia, PA ~ USA -- Corrupt Justice™ has obtained a video (Click here for video) of the police shooting that took place Thursday night at 60th and Spruce streets. Edward Archer, a 30-year-old Delaware County man who has allegedly claimed an allegiance to ISIS, shot and wounded Officer Jesse Hartnett at 11:41 p.m. last night, city police said. Stunningly, Hartnett can be seen in the video getting out of his patrol car and chasing down the shooter after being ambushed. Officials say Hartnett is in critical but stable condition.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Montgomery County, Pa. -- Bill Cosby, the comedian and entertainer once known as “America’s dad”, appeared in court (Click here for video) to face his first criminal charge for sexual misconduct on Wednesday, for an incident in which he allegedly drugged and violated a woman who considered him to be her mentor.

Oklahoma City OK ~ USA -- A former Oklahoma City police officer was convicted Thursday of 18 of the 36 counts he faced, including four counts of first-degree rape, related to accusations that he victimized 13 women on his police beat in a minority, low-income neighborhood. Daniel Holtzclaw, 29, sobbed (Click here for video) as the verdict was read aloud. He could spend the rest of his life in prison based on the jury's recommendations, which include a 30-year sentence on each of the first-degree rape counts. Among the other charges he was convicted of were forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery and second-degree rape.

Corrupt & Perverted Judges - Part II




July 28, 2010

OAKLAND -- On May 18, 2010, a federal appeals court upheld $3.7 million in damages Tuesday against the city of Oakland and two police officers who, according to a jury, planted an assault rifle on a parolee's property. Jurors found in November 2007 that the officers had violated the civil rights of the parolee, Torry Smith, and his then-girlfriend, Patricia Gray, by fabricating a case against Smith to justify his arrest in September 2004. Smith spent 4 1/2 months in jail before being cleared.

Uncle Clarence!


September 29, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC -- Democratic lawmakers on Thursday called for a federal investigation into Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' failure to report hundreds of thousands of dollars on annual financial disclosure forms. Led by House Rules Committee ranking member Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), 20 House Democrats sent a letter to the Judicial Conference of the United States -- the entity that frames guidelines for the administration of federal courts -- requesting that the conference refer the matter of Thomas' non-compliance with the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 to the Department of Justice.

The letter outlines how, throughout his 20-year tenure on the Supreme Court, Thomas routinely checked a box titled "none" on his annual financial disclosure forms, indicating that his wife had received no income. But in reality, the letter states, she earned nearly $700,000 from the Heritage Foundation from 2003 to 2007 alone.

Slaughter called it "absurd" to suggest that Thomas may not have known how to fill out the forms.

"It is reasonable, in every sense of the word, to believe that a member of the highest court in the land should know how to properly disclose almost $700,000 worth of income," Slaughter said in a statement. "To not be able to do so is suspicious, and according to law, requires further investigation. To accept Justice Thomas’s explanation without doing the required due diligence would be irresponsible."

The letter also cites a June report in The New York Times indicating Thomas may have regularly benefited from the use of a private yacht and airplane owned by real estate magnate Harlan Crow and failed to disclose the travel as a gift or travel reimbursement.

Current law requires the Judicial Conference to refer to the Attorney General any judge the conference "has reasonable cause to believe has willfully failed to file a report or has willfully falsified or willfully failed to file information required to be reported."

Slaughter's press statement also notes that the Heritage Foundation was a prominent opponent of the Affordable Care Act, an issue the Supreme Court is expected to rule on by next summer.

"The Attorney General would be the appropriate person to investigate the issue of non-disclosure, and that is why my colleagues and I are making this request today," Slaughter said. "I cannot determine guilt or innocence, but I can request that the government do our due diligence in investigating a situation that strikes me, and many other members of Congress, as suspicious."

Other members of Congress on the letter include Reps. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), Mike Honda (D-Calif.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Christopher Murphy (D-Conn.), John Garamendi (D-Calif.), Pete Stark (D-Calif.), Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), John Olver (D-Mass.), Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Donna Edwards (D-Md.), Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.), Bob Filner (D-Calif.), Peter Welch (D-Vt.), John Conyers (D-Mich.), Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.).

Vester Recants!


June 15, 2011



Georgia - The wife of Albany Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver (pictured above, center) Vester, now claims her husband never assaulted her. She held a press conference at church with a pastor and reverend taking their turns to praise the judge and blame others for Vester's report.



May 24, 2011

The GBI is looking into reports of a domestic altercation between Judge Willie Weaver and his wife. But local advocates are speaking out today, concerned enough isn't being done. On Tuesday there was no sign of Judge Willie Weaver at his Pine Avenue office. The municipal court judge is under investigation in connection with a domestic altercation involving his wife. “Judge Weaver’s wife was presented to the local hospital and indicated that there had been an altercation,” said Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards. “Part of what the initial investigation is that it occurred at the home of a police officer.”

But while he's not at his office he's not in jail either. Now advocates against domestic violence are questioning why not. “If there were witnesses and there was a perpetrator and that person was identified as such and it was family violence then somebody needed to go to jail,” said Silke Deeley, Director of the Liberty House. Now officials in Dougherty County are trying to walk a fine line making sure they show no favoritism. “Because of the nature of the case and the potential for any conflict that might arise from the investigation. I deemed it appropriate to immediately bring in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation,” said Edwards.

Albany Police initially handled the case before it was turned over to GBI. We reached out to officials to ask why no one was arrested, but they said since the case is no longer in their hands they can't make a comment. But District Attorney Edwards says evidence at the scene played a key role.

“Presentation of the initial report was not at the crime scene, if there was a crime. So I am not sure if they had any information to make an arrest,” said Edwards.

Weaver has not been charged in this case. Once the GBI completes their investigation they will turn the information over to the district attorney.

An investigation is underway by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation involving Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver following a report of a domestic violence incident over the weekend. According to the police report, the Albany Police Department responded to Palmyra Medical Center on Saturday at 11 p.m. in reference to a report of a domestic violence incident. According to the report the victim was an injured female and the primary aggressor was listed as Willie C. Weaver. The 31-year-old woman involved in the altercation is "the wife of an Albany Municipal Court Judge," says the GBI.

In a press release, the GBI says on Sunday, Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards requested a GBI investigation into the injuries sustained by the 31-year-old during the alleged incident from Saturday. No arrests or charges have been made at this time. The investigation by agents from the GBI’s Sylvester Field Office continues. Albany Mayor Willie Adams confirmed that he is aware of the ongoing investigation and is awaiting the GBI report before informing the city commission. “I think it’s probably inappropriate for me to comment on ongoing investigations. I have to presume innocence until proven guilty," says Adams. "I understand it’s under investigation, so I’m waiting to see what comes out of that.”

According to the police report, the case remains active and was forwarded to Family Protection Investigators.

James Gibbons


August 31, 2010

A cleavage-crazed criminal court judge - who fathered a son with a young Legal Aid lawyer - quit after officials found a massive porn stash on his work computer, sources said Thursday. Disgraced Manhattan jurist James Gibbons (pictured left) a whip-smart ex-prosecutor who once convicted rapists and killers, fired off a terse resignation letter last week after the nasty cache was uncovered. "There was a lot of porn on his computer - all young women," an investigator told the News. "Lots of crotch and cleavage shots."

The Manhattan district attorney's office is scouring the vile files to determine if criminal charges are warranted - and are checking whether any of the women are underage.

Gibbons, 47, already had raised eyebrows with his ethics-skirting romance with Legal Aid lawyer Jeanne Emhoff, 31, who he fathered a son with weeks ago. Emhoff's Facebook page, which was pulled down Thursday, featured a photo of a man with a boy on his shoulder. The porn revelation staggered the baby's grandparents. "This is going to break her heart," Emhoff's stepdad said of his wife. "She thinks the world of Jim. ... This will destroy my wife."

Gibbons - who was not arrested - was caught when a computer-monitoring system in the courthouse red-flagged his courthouse terminal, a law enforcement source said.

He was on paternity leave when the images were discovered and the computer seized.

During the 14 years he worked in the Manhattan district attorney's office, Gibbons was well-known for his efficient handling of street crimes.

He also enjoyed a good reputation on the bench after his December 2001 appointment by departing Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

"He was a very careful judge on the law," lawyer Adam Freedman said. "If he was using his state-issued computer for illegal activities, it would be uncharacteristic, considering how careful he is on the law."

Despite the possible conflicts of interest between Gibbons and Emhoff, a source close to the case said, their affair was unrelated to the investigation.

"There is absolutely no link between the judge's relationship with Jeanne Emhoff and any alleged criminal activity," the source said. "One has nothing to do with the other."

It was unclear when the porn was found on the disgraced judge's computer, but sources said its discovery was just routine.

"In government agencies, and in many private sector firms, employers are able to monitor employee computer usage," a source said.

Gibbons quit his position with a simple three-paragraph letter that offered no clues to his sudden nightmare.

"It has been a privilege to serve as a judge of the Criminal Court of the City of New York," he wrote. "Please accept this letter as a statement of my resignation of that office effective today."

Update


Samuel Kent


August 3, 2010

A former federal judge in Texas who admitted to nonconsensual sexual contact with court employees, although he pleaded guilty last year only to a related federal obstruction of justice charge, is now challenging prison conditions and seeking a new sentence.

Samuel Kent says he is being treated like a sex offender, even though he was never convicted of a sex crime, and complains that he has spent significant amounts of time in solitary and has been denied access to substance-abuse treatment and computer classes, reports the Associated Press.

In a motion filed yesterday in federal court in Houston, Kent alleges that "the Federal Bureau of Prisons has subjected Sam Kent to abusive psychological and physical conditions that have jeopardized his ongoing recovery from depression and alcoholism."

HOUSTON - A disgraced federal judge in Texas has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for lying about whether he sexually abused his secretary.U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent was sentenced to 33 months Monday. He also was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay $6,550 in restitution to the two women whose complaints resulted in the first sex abuse case against a sitting federal judge. See Perverted Judges, Part I.

Judge Timothy Blakely


May 12, 2009

District Judge Timothy Blakely (pictured far left) should be permanently removed from office, the Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards has recommended.

Blakely, 46, who sits in Dakota and Goodhue counties, admittedly steered business to a divorce attorney who had given Blakely a discounted rate for handling his divorce case, the board said.

In the decision filed Monday, the board found that Blakely's actions "deprived citizens of their right to the honest service expected of a public official, possibly in violation of state or federal laws."

The board also said that "Blakely failed to admit that his conduct was improper and did not take responsibility for his actions."

The final decision on the judge's discipline will rest with the Minnesota Supreme Court; that process that can take anywhere from three to five months. Blakely will remain in office during that time, his attorney, Thomas M. Kelley, said today. "We're hopeful that the Supreme Court will look at this independently and objectively," Kelley told the Star Tribune.

The board began an investigation in April, 2007. Blakely subsequently requested a formal hearing, which was held in November to determine whether he had violated the Code of Judicial Conduct. During that hearing, Blakely acknowledged getting the large discount -- a $68,503 reduction on a $108,876 bill -- for an attorney who handled his contentious divorce.

Previous Post


March 11, 2009

A three-member panel of the state Board on Judicial Standards today recommended censure and a six-month unpaid suspension for Goodhue and Dakota County District Judge Timothy Blakely. Led by former Supreme Court Justice Edward Stringer, the board found "clear and convincing evidence" that Blakely violated judicial rules and the state code of judicial conduct by accepting a $63,503 markdown on his $108,876 divorce and appointing his attorney as a mediator in cases he oversaw.

Lawrence Redmond and retired Hennepin County District Judge Allen Oleisky also were on the panel. The recommendation now goes to the entire board for action. The board can dismiss, accept or modify the panel's recommendation. The board's recommendation then goes to the state Supreme Court, which takes briefs, hears arguments, and ultimately will decide what, if any, punishment Blakely faces.

Blakely was on the bench and did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Acting as prosecutor for the board, lawyer Doug Kelley of Minneapolis had sought Blakely's removal.

The investigation into Blakely's actions began after his ex-wife complained he got special treatment. The nine-page complaint included numerous e-mails between the judge and his lawyer Christine Stroemer. According to the complaint, the judge struggled to pay the tab for his contentious divorce, which started in October 2002 and ended in September 2004. By December 2003, he was "severely delinquent" in paying his divorce fees to Stroemer, of the firm Collins, Buckley, Sauntry & Haugh.

Before his divorce, Blakely had not appointed Stroemer to mediate any divorces over which he presided in court, the complaint said. But in November 2004 he "ordered parties appearing before him" in a Dakota County case to submit to mediation with Stroemer. Divorcing couples pay their own mediation costs.

In the first two months of 2005, he appointed Stroemer as a mediator in three Dakota County District Court divorces, according to the complaint.

The panel's 15-page report noted that in testimony "Blakely acknowledged that his reference to significant past and future business referrals while negotiating a fee reduction with Stroemer raises the question of whether he was offering a quid pro quo."

But Blakely argued that it wouldn't be a "reasonable inference" to an informed person: "The question is, is it a fully informed person or some guy standing in the courtroom who doesn't know anything about what we do for a living?"

The panel found his explanation to be "hardly credible," given his repeated failures to advise Stroemer that there was no quid pro quo.

The judge admitted to the board's executive director that his e-mails with Stroemer "looked like crap" and that he had an "ah-ha moment" and "could see a question was raised" by the exchanges, the report said. In a letter, he acknowledged that, "I now also see that as a judge, I should not have mentioned my ability to continue to direct business referrals to [the firm] in the context of a negotiation over the fees I owed them."

Thomas Kelly, who represented Blakely, has said his client simply referred clients to his attorney as anyone might refer someone to a good lawyer. Kelly wasn't immediately available for comment today. Blakely was elected to the bench in 1998. His term expires in 2010.

C.J. Note: A six month suspension for using judicial authority to pay private debts is the epitome of Corrupt Justice.


Thomas E. Stringer


April 23, 2009

Thomas E. Stringer (pictured far left), the well-respected, married judge suddenly found his face splashed beside that of a troubled exotic dancer in a kimono (pictured right of judge). She went on TV to claim they'd been romantically involved, and that he helped her hide money from creditors, even putting a rent-controlled New York City apartment under his name for her.

Stringer's 35-year legal career was tarnished. "It is axiomatic that 'Judge' and 'Stripper' showing up in a headline is never a good thing, especially if you happen to be the 'Judge,'" then Tampa Tribune columnist Daniel Ruth wrote after the story broke.

Criminal charges are possible, though the FBI declined to comment. The state agency that oversees judges dropped misconduct charges after Stringer, who stepped down in February and draws monthly retirement benefits of $8,069, agreed never to be a judge again.

To his friends and the legal community, the speed of Stringer's fall was shocking. Many are reserving judgment, while others feel their trust in him was misplaced. Delano Stewart, a Tampa attorney who calls himself a former friend of Stringer, said Stringer's conduct "disrespects all of what I have worked for all of my life." "I am so deeply angry with him," Stewart said.

Stringer, 64, graduated from Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport in the 1970s. He was the first black graduate from his law school. He became an assistant state attorney and later a circuit judge in Tampa's Hillsborough County. There, in the family law division, he built a reputation as a judge who insisted that all sides be heard. "I can tell you, the family lawyers idolized Tom Stringer," said Chief Judge Stevan T. Northcutt of Florida's 2nd District Court of Appeal. In 1999, Stringer was appointed to that court, where judges make $153,140 a year.

Fast forward to March 2008. Yamanaka, 48, showed up on a local TV station, dressed in a yellow kimono with burnt orange flowers, her long, dark hair flowing. She said she met the judge at an Italian restaurant in 1995, when she was a stripper in Tampa. Five years later, she was deep in debt and turned to him for advice. Later, she said she went public after Stringer refused to repay money he owed her.

Yamanaka had tried to file for bankruptcy in Nevada in 2000 and court documents show she owed American Express more than $78,000, racked up from stays at expensive hotels in Las Vegas and airline tickets. She owed Bank of America another $236,000. She listed her occupation as housewife and said she had just $450 in assets _ family pictures, clothes and a wedding ring _ and no income. The bankruptcy court denied her request, meaning she would have to repay the debts.

Yamanaka, who is divorced, said the judge helped by allowing her to deposit tens of thousands of dollars she made from stripping in Las Vegas and New York into his accounts so creditors wouldn't know she had an income. "Judge suggests to me to put the money into his account," Yamanaka told WFLA-TV in Tampa. "Due to his position nobody bothered him so it would be safe." Stringer told reporters he let her use his accounts because she had terrible credit but denied helping her hide money.

The Judicial Qualifications Commission, which oversees judges in Florida, investigated and found probable cause to believe Stringer had opened bank accounts in his name and let her use them from 2003 to 2007 to hide assets. The commission's inquiry does not say how much money might have passed through the accounts. The allegations listed by the commission only get worse: Stringer listed himself as the sole owner of a home in Hawaii for her. He accepted a trip from her to Las Vegas, a gift he did not disclose though judicial canons require reporting all gifts over $100. He went to New York to sign a lease on an apartment for her, putting it under his name, and allowed her to treat him to a stay at The Waldorf-Astoria hotel. He asked her to buy two Rolex watches, one for him and one for his wife. He borrowed $50,000 from her in a no-interest loan that he failed to repay. None of the transactions was included on the financial disclosure report required of judges.

The alleged acts "constitute conduct unbecoming a member of the judiciary," the commission concluded. When the commission charged Stringer with ethical violations in January, his lawyer called it "tragic."

Stringer, who has said he had a friendship and business relationship with stripper Christy Yamanaka, declined to comment for this story. His attorney did not return repeated messages left at his office. Yamanaka also declined to comment.


Judge James Peck


March 16, 2009

Prosecutors in Manhattan dropped assault charges on Monday against a federal bankruptcy judge accused of hitting his wife in the face, saying that the wife was not cooperating in the case.

The judge, James M. Peck, 63, (pictured far left) was arrested on Jan. 31 after his wife, Judith, 66, called 911 from their home on Park Avenue near 87th Street, the authorities said.
He was accused of hitting his wife with an open palm, causing pain in her jaw that required treatment at a hospital, according to a complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court. Judge Peck was charged with third-degree attempted assault and second-degree harassment.

Melissa Sussman, an assistant district attorney, said in court that the charges were being dismissed for “a number of reasons, including the complaining witness being uncooperative.”

Judge Peck, who has been overseeing the bankruptcy case of Lehman Brothers, was appointed in 2006 to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

At the time of Judge Peck’s arrest, Paul J. Browne, the chief spokesman for the Police Department, said that the police had never before been called to the Pecks’ home about a domestic dispute.

Barry A. Bohrer, a lawyer for Judge Peck, said, “We are gratified that the district attorney recognized that this matter did not belong in the criminal justice system. It’s a personal and private matter and it was appropriately dismissed and sealed.”

C.J. Note: If Judge Peck were a normal, private citizen, he'd still be in jail.
