Well, if you have a good memory, we previously discussed the rather curious case of Judge O. Joseph Boeckmann of Cross County, Arkansas . . .
Boeckmann resigned in a truly bizarre scandal where he was accused of ordering male defendants to be spanked, engage in sex acts and bend over for thousands of photographs to fulfill their “community service.” Now he is the subject of a federal indictment that details how he dismissed traffic and misdemeanor cases in exchange for the photos of defendants in “compromising positions” while performing “community service” for the judge.
He is charged with bribery, wire fraud, witness tampering, and violating the federal travel act. The charges include allegedly encouraging defendants not to discuss case dismissals, falsifying court paperwork, and attempting to threaten and bribe witnesses. The allegations include dismissals allegedly in exchange for being photographed naked, or while masturbating, or while being paddled on his bare buttocks.
Here is the indictment: Boechmann Indictment
