Judge Accused of Having Sex with Defendants Resigns as Explicit

ccording to public documents, the judge's resignation came after being notified by the commission that its investigators had identified defendants in more than a thousand photos depicting young men posing naked inside and outside the judge's home. The documents also allege some of the young men had received payments from the judge while also appearing on the judge's docket in district court.

According to the documents, the photos also depicted evidence the young men had been paddled and asked the judge to be on notice he was instructed not to destroy the paddle depicted in the photos. The JDDC estimated nearly 4,500 photos were turned over to investigators, who were still working to identify all the young men in the photos as of Friday.

Seriously what in the ****? 4,500 photos... thousands of people? It went on unreported for ALL THIS TIME?

I didn't put this in the 'news' section because it's just too ****ed up.

Looks like blackmail, kidnapping(the guy that was handcuffed) and possible sexual assault charges are in order.

Normally I'd suggest that this guy be left in a locked room with a pistol and a bullet but that would be too good for him.

You can bet it was reported before now, but a criminal defendant's word against a judge's? Fat chance.

Our "justice" system is beyond pitiable.

The abuse goes back maybe 30 years? That's a lot of lawsuits the court will now be facing. Anyone who has ever appeared before that "udge" (in Arizona we refer to them as "judge") should expect to be able to file for a mistrial.

You know what is odd about this... he was accused last november, and is STILL not in jail

Cross County District Judge Joe Boeckmann was charged by the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission in November, accused of having sex with defendants, demanding defendants take sexually explicit photos, among other charges
