Judge Pleads Guilty to Federal Corruption Charge

Imagine a U.S. Attorney in New York EVER being able to say: "The essence of the honest services fraud charge was that the defendant allowed his judicial decisions to be manipulated by outside influences from improper sources, such as the requests of particular individuals who had his ear regarding special treatment for some of those who appeared or had cases before him," said [Macon, GA] Acting United States Attorney G. F. "Pete" Peterman, III.

Former Clinch judge pleads guilty
The Associated Press - September 11, 2009

MACON, Ga. (AP) - A former Georgia Superior Court judge has pleaded guilty to a federal corruption charge, in a deal with proseutors that keeps him out of prison. The plea by Brooks E. Blitch III ends a lengthy investigation by state and federal authorities who toppled him as one of rural Clinch County's most powerful politicians. The plea Friday morning came before U.S. District Court Judge Hugh Lawson. Blitch pleaded guilty to a single count of honest service fraud conspiracy for granting favors to defendants outside of court. He admitted to reducing sentences and bonds and terminating probations without hearings or notifying prosecutors. The 74-year-old Blitch resigned last year to settle misconduct charges by a state agency that investigates judges. Federal prosecutors indicted him on criminal corruption charges two months later.

Here is the press release for the U. S. Attorney's Office-
ALAPAHA CIRCUIT SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE PLEADS GUILTY

Former Alapaha Circuit Superior Court Judge Brooks E. Blitch, III, pled guilty before the Honorable Hugh Lawson, United States District Judge for the Middle District of Georgia, to one count of Honest Services Fraud Conspiracy in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1341, 1343, 1346 and 1349. The maximum sentence for this offense is twenty years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release, and a mandatory assessment of $100.00. Blitch had already surrendered his judicial position and agreed to never again seek such as the result of prior proceedings instituted by the Judicial Qualifications Committee of Georgia. Pursuant to a plea agreement between the government and Blitch, he would receive a probated sentence and a fine, the length and amount of each to be set by the court after a pre-sentence investigation and report are completed by the United States Probation Office. The agreement will not be final until approved by the court, which announcement is usually made at sentencing. A sentencing date has not been set, but normally is scheduled approximately sixty days after a conviction or plea of guilty.

"The essence of the honest services fraud charge was that the defendant allowed his judicial decisions to be manipulated by outside influences from improper sources, such as the requests of particular individuals who had his ear regarding special treatment for some of those who appeared or had cases before him," said Acting United States Attorney G. F. "Pete" Peterman, III. "Our goal throughout this and related prosecutions has been to ensure that judicial and law enforcement decisions made in the Alapaha Judicial Circuit are properly based on the dictates of the law and basic fairness, in an open and public proceeding, rather than through favoritism and improper influence in private chambers." In prosecutions connected with this matter one sheriff, a court clerk, and a Clinch County State/Juvenile Court Judge, in addition to other individuals, have pled guilty to criminal charges, as well. This case was investigated by the Thomasville and Valdosta offices of the Atlanta Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The lead investigators were Special Agents Jim Grady and Tony Smith. The prosecution was handled by Assistant United States Attorneys Leah McEwen, Jim Crane and Graham Thorpe. Further inquiries should be directed to Sue McKinney, Public Affairs Specialist, United States Attorney's Office, at (478) 621-2602.

Only in America! What did this bum have on people? The attorneys protect their own especially when their interests are involved. After that then we get the story how it would not serve Justice and the harm it would do to the system. How long are we the taxpayers going to take this crap?

This is rampant in New York and needs to be prosecuted to the fullest. But in New York their would not be just one judge it would be dozens that would go to jail. Their is not a law on the books corrupt judges in New York that they are act routinely and actively ignoring. Their is no rule of law in this state.

So why isn't my US Attorney or FBI investigating my Senator & friends for falsifying/altering medical information to deny my rights to due process, to deny every right a human being has,in the 8th Judicial District.....
Since it is the attorneys that altered the medical information to begin with and are continuing to..........I thought that was illegal? Felony?
If my AG does not properly respond does that mean that office is also culpable, protecting someone?
Does my Senator always protect adulterers, the mentally ill just because they perform sexual favors for his friends?

Here in NY, Saint Andrew, Patron Saint of Crooked lawyers and Judges protects his flock from the people. Saint Andrews father, Mario, must be so proud of his son's saintly duties.
And praise be to the NYT for all the news that they cover-up about court corruption.

expose the dark, they hate the light
let no one decive you with empty words,... do not be partakers with them ...walk as children of the light, light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth...
do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness but instead expose them
for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret...
all things become visible when they are exposed by the light......

the law was written many years ago

expose the evil, walk in the light

Prety good act for "Acting USA G. F. 'Pete' Peterman, III," I say we import him to New York. The opportunities here would be endless for him. Another plus he could clear out all the dead wood in federal offices.

The 8th Judicial rules


"The essence of the honest services fraud charge was that the lawyer, judge, public officials, US Attorneys, certain newspapers allowed decisions to be manipulated by outside influences from improper sources, such as the requests of particular individuals who had his/her ear regarding special treatment for some of those who appeared or had cases before him,"

Of course the Senate killed the Ethics bill to help reform and the Republicans led the way to the slaughter......

VOTE THEM OUT!!!!!!!!!!

lawmakers should create a new commission empowered to oversee the executive branch of government. Again, it should not be dominated by the governor—or any elected official, for that matter. Its executive director should also be shielded from political pressure through a set term and removal only for cause.

VOTE THEM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

One case at a time.

NY Supreme Court justice was promoted Off eToys case (NY Sup Ct case 601805/2002) by Eliot Spitzer when she went after Paul Traub.

DE Dist Ct Judge KAJ was promoted off the eToys case when he told the attorneys that "their lives were on the line" - the transcript has been altered - but the evidence shows he was promoted 2 weeks later (in a weekend vote) to the 3rd Cir Court of appeals.

The Largest Organized Criminal Elements in our country are the public tax paid servants who break the Law for gain or promise - this includes State Judges, Magistrates, Federal Judges and the US Trustee's office (the single largest sophisticated network of law breakers in America - BAR NONE)

you can see the Online Affidavit

You will NOT believe your eyes
all public documents
Including the DOJ US Trustee stating it Will NOT mention a law firms acts
and the DOJ Public Corruption Unit being shut down and threats made against Asst US Attorneys to keep silent or ELSE!

Stand up and Fight for your American way of Life

One of the most corrupt Federal Judges in the United States is former Chief Judge Alicemarie H. Stotler of the Central District of California. We have Court documents proving she committed, among other acts, Jury Fraud to obtain a conviction. She sent an innocent man to prison with an illegal Judgment and Commitment Order. We have documented proof of 4 other cases where she committed crimes to obtain convictions. All of her cases need to be reviewed, immediately.
