Massachusetts judge who helped illegal immigrant escape ICE arrest indicted, federal authorities say

EXCERPT:

A Massachusetts judge and 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.

Newton District Court Judge Shelley M. Richmond 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.

“This case is about the rule of law. The allegations in today’s indictment involve obstruction by a sitting judge, that is intentional interference with the enforcement of federal law, and that is a crime," U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling said Thursday.

Joseph and MacGregor were both charged with obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting; obstruction of a federal proceeding, aiding and abetting and conspiracy to obstruct justice, Lelling said. MacGregor was also charged with perjury before a federal grand jury.

"As public servants, all of the officers in the court make a promise — a promise to serve the people’s interest above all else. Today we know this promise has been broken,” said Peter Fitzhugh, special agent in charge of the Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, who led the investigation.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement that the indictment "is a radical and politically-motivated attack on our state and the independence of our courts."

"It is a bedrock principle of our constitutional system that federal prosecutors should not recklessly interfere with the operation of state courts and their administration of justice," she continued.


Any doubt whether the AG supports abortion and gay marriage nationwide? Powers that the Constitution defers to the states. Another question is why are the federal authorities' pictures featured in the article but not the offending parties'? Must be the old superstition that a photograph steals the souls of three subversive public servants and a known criminal alien.

Someone ought to clue Schiff in about this, it’s a wonderful example of what obstruction of justice looks like.

This guy is a lawyer. You really think anything is going to happen to him? I'm sorry, but in my experience judges (and lawyers) know how to work the system and rarely are held accountable.

No need to be sorry. I stood my ground, showed up in court, believing that the judge would listen to both sides before ruling on a case. That's not how it works in the real world. By the tripping power on their own balls do they divine in selfish preoccupied hate land.
