Corrupt Judge was texting Instructions to prosecutors to help send people to prison

By Techyville

Texas district Judge Elizabeth E. Coker is stepping down from the bench after she is being heavily scrutinized because of a texting scandal. A recent whistle blowing case exposed that the judge was SMS messaging prosecutor’s questions that they should ask the people on the stand to secure a conviction. The accusations popped up when media stories came out that Coker was sending inappropriate texts to Polk County Assistant District Attorney Kaycee Jones while she ruled over a criminal trial August of last year. Once the allegations were launched, the commission decided to launch an investigation again to see if it was true that she was texting questions to Jones that she believed would get her a conviction.

The commission did not stop their investigation there. They also discovered that Coker was engaged in improper activities and meetings with Jones amongst other members of the Polk County Prosecutor’s office. Other unethical communications took place between her and the San Jacinto County District Attorney and other defense attorneys. Her un-ethical practices could open a big can of legal troubles. All of the cases tried under her may be overturned and guilty people may be set free. People who claimed to be innocent might actually be innocent and might be eligible to be set free.

The commission went on to say that the parties do agree that judicial misconduct really did take place. If these things are found to be true, disciplinary action will most likely take place with Judge Coker. The judge decided to step down, but that doesn’t mean she won’t face prosecution or stiffer penalties.  The commissioner also said that he hopes all of the parties will be able to resolve the stressful matter without further disciplinary actions.
