A senior judge has been arrested on rape charges after his alleged victim secretly filmed him carrying out the attack.
Judge Albert Murdoch was also allegedly caught on the hidden tape boasting that he was above the law and would use his police contacts to make any charges go away.
His arrest has led to authorities in New Mexico to look into many of the cases he presided over during a 25-year career.
Murdoch, a 59-year-old criminal judge for the Second Judicial District Court in Bernalillo County in Albuquerque, was arrested on rape charges based on the hidden tape.
Police said a prostitute hired on at least eight occasions by Murdoch set up the camera when she visited his home

The judge is corrupt and should be removed from the bench. Period.
But a hooker filing rape charges?
"She had previously claimed she had been forced to take part in sex acts against her will and wanted to gather evidence."
Good for her!
Take out the judicial trash.
Prima Facia I would believe the whore first.
I leave it up to you to decide whom I believe.
Sounds like the Girl who Played with Fire.
I agree with you.
Did she have a dragon tatoo?
The judge is held to a higher standard, but this is beneath anyone. Can I assume he’s q democrat by the old non-disclosure rule in the article?
How can you rape a prostitute. You pay for sex.
I am not sure that the prostitute has much of case. She is being paid to do what he wants, after all.
LOL - The "authorities" are going to look into his cases? This case is a defense attorney's wet dream. They are going to start taking apart every conviction he's ever presided over.
“Prostitutes are by far the most frequent victims of rape. Sorry to pop your infantile fantasy bubble. When you are older you will understand. “
Take your infantile belligerence elsewhere, jerk.
Lot of crazy stuff happens by the MAN.
A judge ruled Monday that a former Carson City probation officer will face trial on charges he used his authority to engage in on-the-job sexual misconduct with six women, half of whom he had been supervising...
ARticle goes on to give a work history of this guy who was fired for wacky stuff as a Corrections Officer, and before that fired for wacky stuff as a Deputy Sheriff.
He hasn't been convicted yet, so "alleged criminal judge"
Hooker raped. Dog bites owner.
“The prostitute said she first met Murdoch when he responded to an advert she had placed online and paid her $200 for sex.”
He PAID HER to have sex.
This wasn’t some “companion” or something. She was an old-fashioned prostitute PAID SPECIFICALLY FOR SEX.
Therefore, no rape, period.
He is a sleazeball abusing his position and should be removed from the bench though.

I once lived in New Mexico It is as corrupt as it’s neighbor to the south.
So, she was visiting his home, she was a prostitute, and had visited him at least eight times previously. And decided to video the encounter.
I strongly suspect that what happened was a play-acting scenario that the judge enjoyed, and which the hooker figured could take him down if she alleged it was not play-acting.
The judge has since retired in exchange for no further disciplinary actions by the judicial board. That’s good, he should be disqualified as a judge and that is what happened (he can’t ever be a judge again per his today’s agreement).
This was one of seven encounters and the prostitute began filming the judge without his permission and asking hypotheticals. It sounds like it was a blackmail case that did not go anywhere and we have no idea what they agreed to prior to her activating the camera. Also, the prostitute claims she didn’t want to receive oral sex, not that she didn’t agree to have sex with the judge.
She also tried accusing the judge of having child pornography on his computer, which apparently wasn’t the case, and the police misfiled the charges which they are not looking to amend (he was accused of raping a child when the prostitute is not).
