The judge resigned from his post during investigation that he traded lenient criminal sentences for nude and otherwise sexually suggestive pictures of male defendants - and forged court papers accordingly.
Some 4,500 pictures were involved - that "wealth" of pictures does not accumulate in one day. Or one week. Or even one year.
Some pictures, reportedly, involved a nude criminal defendant, handcuffed and in the courtroom - so multiple people had to be present or know about that - leaning forward, with pictures taken from the back, as a close-up.
The judge reportedly took some pictures as "betting with friends".
Back in June of 2016 I asked disturbing questions -
- with 4,500 pictures, this behavior had to go on for a very long time, with a lot of people knowing about it - so why those people kept quiet? They were afraid to lose their jobs?
- why the 70-year-old Judge Boeckmann allowed to quietly resign (and keep his pension), and was not criminally charged?
- why the sexual predator Judge Boeckmann's law license was not pulled?
