Prison Couldn't Happen To A More Deserving Couple

It's rare to see our justice system produce so poetic a result.
“Your statement that I have disgraced my judgeship is true. My actions have destroyed everything I worked to accomplish and I have only myself to blame.”
The two judges face up to seven years in prison under a plea agreement made with the state.
If the result were fully poetic, of course, they would not have been offered a plea deal. They'd be railroaded into prison for an excessive period of time, having been kept away from legal representation. They benefit from the prosaic concerns of justice that they so often denied to others, in order to enrich themselves.

We can always hope their fellow inmates find out who they are.

After all, those worthies deserve to know with whom they're being forced to live.

Real justice would involve two wood stakes.

7 years!!! That's it -- for ruining thousands of kid's and families lives?
Like one commenter said, "If they'd taken money from an open cash register they'd have gotten 20 years."

Well, yes Sly, they would have gotten 20 years for robbery. But that's such a plebeian crime. Judges are such a better class of citizen. You can't expect them to actually go to JAIL jail, now can you?

And for the record, I tried to make the sarcasm drool off that comment, but it's the internet and the written word can sometimes be taken seriously. So in this case, please don't.

People have forgotten how to hate evil.

So long as they keep that up, they will never apply justice or receive its benefits.
