Judge resigns as nude photos of defendants found on his computer – Ars Technica

An Arkansas local judge resigned Monday following an ethics commission inquiry that concluded he had traded sex for reduced sentences and stored pictures of nude defendants on his home computer. The commission alleged he also housed child porn on that computer.

Cross County District Judge Joseph Boeckmann’s resignation comes months after the state Judicial Discipline & Disability Commission concluded that the judge gave male defendants a hand-written note in court with his phone number on it instructing them that they could perform a “community service” at his house as part of a “substitutionary” sentence.
