    An Arkansas judge accused of swapping sex for reduced sentences resigned after a state commission said it discovered thousands of photographs from his computer depicting nude male defendants. In a letter to the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission, Cross County District Judge Joseph Boeckmann said his resignation was effective immediately, and that he would never again seek a job as a local, county or state employee. The commission said it was in the process of recovering as many as 4,500 photos. "They all depict young men, many naked who are in various poses inside the judge's home and outside in...

It had struggled earlier to get the required 43,991 petition signatures for its candidates to make the ballot. At a hearing Thursday, Green Party member Garrett Mize testified that Perry's former chief of staff,...

    People called, wrote notes and went in person to offer condolences and support after a southwest Oklahoma City pharmacist was charged Wednesday in connection with last week’s shooting death of a robbery suspect, the store owner said this morning.

Ersland’s actions during a robbery attempt left a 16-year-old dead. “We’ve had tons of calls and letters from people who want to help and we are...

    It would be a mistake for incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi to set aside fellow Californian Jane Harmon and give the House Intelligence Committee chairmanship to Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings. Harmon has been the ranking Democrat on the committee and an effective spokeswoman for her party's interests. But Pelosi believes she has been insufficiently partisan and has made it clear Harmon won't be chairman. Instead, Pelosi is considering appointing Hastings, who as a federal judge in 1989 was impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate after Congress concluded he conspired to solicit a $150,000 bribe, lied under oath and...

    When Jerald R. Klein, a Manhattan housing court judge, got a call from a reporter yesterday morning, he had no idea why he was being bothered at home on the weekend.

According to a posting on eBay, an online auction house, the 55-year-old judge would go to the highest bidder. After four days, the best offer was $127.50. The eBay advertisement,...
