South Texas Judge Busted by Feds for RICO, Head of US Bureau of Prisons Busted for DWI

Former state district judge Abel C. Limas of Brownsville pled guilty in a RICO case to taking bribes to fix cases, hours after his arrest by federal agents. The indictment charges Lima with using his court to "generate income ... through bribery, extortion, favoritism, improper influence, personal self-enrichment, self-dealing, concealment and conflict of interest." It goes on to list eight separate alleged episodes of racketeering.
The sentence for racketeering ranges from 10 years to life.  I bet there are some Brownsville lawyers looking over their shoulders.

Austin: State Trooper Indicted Over Bus Encounter
This guy has a chip on his shoulder. He took offense at a bus driver's performance and came onto the bus to complain. Some wiseacre in the back made a remark the trooper didn't like, so he came on and threated to arrest him and shoved him.
