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

By Katherine Lam | Fox News

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.

THIS is how we oppose the "sanctuary" movement.

Great move by the feds.

This has the makings of a way to stop illegal sanctuaries as well.

Throw a few mayors, judges or administrators in jail and see how strong they believe prioritizing illegals over American citizens really is.

Andrew Lelling is the same US Attorney who is prosecuting the college admissions scandals.

BTW ... The Judge today!

No immunity: State judge who helped illegal alien escape to face rare trial

https://justthenews.com/government/courts-law/judge-accused-helping-man-elude-ice-apprehension-courthouse-heading-toward

Quote
A Massachusetts judge is one step closer to facing a federal trial on charges that she assisted an illegal immigrant in avoiding federal apprehension.

A federal judge last week declined to dismiss charges against Massachusetts District Court Judge Shelley M. Richmond Joseph and now-retired Massachusetts trial court officer Wesley MacGregor.

Joseph, MacGregor, and a defense attorney are accused of helping a Dominican man evade being taken into custody at the Newton District Court by ICE agents after a 2018 hearing on criminal charges including drug possession. Prosecutors say the man had previously been removed from the U.S. twice and was barred from reentering the country until 2027.
...
"Joseph’s lawyers have blasted prosecutors for what the defense has called an 'extraordinary sweetheart deal granting complete immunity' to the immigrant’s defense attorney, who they say was the 'architect and ringleader' of the man’s escape plan," the AP reported. "Her lawyers say Joseph had no idea about the plan, but they argue that even if the allegations were true, judicial immunity shields judges from liability for acts 'taken in their judicial role.'"

Then she must be at least 112 years old.

She has a problem as the illegal's attorney was given immunity to testify against her.  Poor judge of people and consequences of her actions.

So she isn't above the law after all.

This needs to be expanded to the city governments who do the same thing.

What don't they understand about what they are doing?  ALL ANTI-AMERICAN BEHAVIORS and against the LAW.  They know what they are doing.  A JUDGE?  How much was the pay off?   If not, then these are mentally ill people.

@AL

There may well be a lube job in her future. Depends on where she is sentenced. If she stays in Mass,chances are she will get the equivalent of the Honeymoon Suite. If she goes to a prison in another state,it's probably not going to go well for her.

All systems are the same in one respect. The people that run them think they own them,and that the rules there don't apply to them.
