Judge Spent 30 Years Trading Sexual Favors for Lighter Sentences

Former Part-Time Judge Joe Boeckmann of Little Rock, Arkansas as resigned following allegation of repeated sexual abuse. Boeckmann is accused of trading sexual favors for reduced sentences. The case is being investigated by the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission. Documents relating to the case show that investigators found thousands of photos on Boeckmann’s home computer of naked and semi-naked men, many of whom were identified by the commission as former defendants whose cases had gone before Boeckmann. The commission planned on filing a subpoena asking Boeckmann to turn over a paddle used to spank several of the young men seen in many of the photographs. It is alleged that Boeckmann showed preferential treatment to white men and allowed sentencing not recorded on court dockets, including performing the task of picking up trash at his home. The list goes on and on. Boeckmann is not the first or the last judge to use their power in an unjust and disgustingly abusive manner. What is apparent is that the Criminal Justice system in America is not perfect. Corruption seeps through and affects many of those with power. The question is why was Boeckmann allowed to continue his illegal activities for so long? Why after 30 years are his actions now being investigated? The Law Offices of Steven J.
