Texas Judge resigns after being caught texting instructions to prosecutors to help win convictions

State District Judge Elizabeth E. Cokerwho sits on the bench over Trinity, Polk and San Jacinto countieshas resigned under fire in a texting controversy, according to a voluntary agreement with the State Commission on Judicial Conduct.

It stems from complaints and media stories alleging that Coker had engaged in improper ex parte text communications with Polk County Assistant District Attorney Kaycee Jones while Judge Coker presided over a criminal trial in August of 2012.

With those complaints, the commission commenced an investigation into allegations that Judge Coker used Assistant District Attorney Jones to privately communicate information about the case to suggest questions for the prosecutor to ask during the trial among other issues.

The agreement also said the commission looked into other complaints that Coker allegedy engaged in other improper communications and meetings with Jones, other members of the Polk County prosecutors office, the San Jacinto County District Attorney and certain defense attorneys.

The agreement goes on to say the parties agree that the allegations of judicial misconduct, if found to be true, could result in disciplinary action against Judge Coker. As a result, the parties sought to resolve the matter without the time and expense of further disciplinary proceedings.

Coker did not admit any guilt or fault.

Who thinks she is an anomaly?

I literally let out one loud "ha!" Whenever someone extols the virtues of the American "justice" system.

It's a great way to see who has been living ostrich style and who hasn't.

They suffer from Patriotitis-headupbuttus. It affects the sight and hearing and results in a stretched ahole.
