A Massachusetts judge and a court officer accused of helping an illegal immigrant flee an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent waiting to take him into custody were indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury for obstruction of justice and three other counts, officials said.
U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling was set to officially announce the charges at a 12:45 p.m. news conference, according to a tweet from the office's official account.
Newton District Court Judge Shelley M. Joseph and the court officer, identified in court documents as Wesley MacGregor, face several charges stemming from an April 2, 2018 incident in which the pair allegedly helped Jose Medina-Perez get out of the courthouse via a back door in order to elude the ICE agent who sought Medina-Perez. They're both charged with obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting; obstruction of a federal proceeding, aiding and abetting; conspiracy to obstruct justice; and perjury.

Now, that’s what obstruction of justice looks like. Dems, take notice.
Do judges have to members of the bar? As members of the bar, does this meet the standards for disbarment?
Wait, I am confused. After the Mueller report, I thought obstruction of justice now meant protesting your innocence when falsely accused of a crime? What am I missing?
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!
Jail time in GP. That should save taxpayers much of the cost of housing, feeding and clothing the judge, while serving time.
Time for spring cleaning.

It will only take a couple of these, covered in legal journals to get the word out. Soon you will see a whole lot of judges, not wanting to “die on that hill”. I find many are willing to support illegals -UNTIL- it impacts them personally.
Do you have a cold?
It’s pretty bad!!
Had he gone on to commit a violent crime, they would be doomed.
The fact this indictment happened in MA is stunning !
Good. Its about time this happened. Its past time, in fact.
