Bandera Follies; Pervert Michigan Judge

Bandera County attorney to settle misconduct suit Settlement terms have been reached in a suit against County Attorney John Payne, accused of abusing his post to benefit a private practice client whose minor son was accused of raping a young girl. Payne, who denied the misconduct allegations and called the suit politically motivated, will pay $2,500 to the girl and her mother, according to court filings that indicate the settlement may be finalized Nov. 19. The suit continues against three juveniles and the father of one, who was previously represented by Payne in an unrelated civil matter. Bandera County deputies complained to District Attorney Bruce Curry last fall that Payne had used his county post to obtain details about the case and advised the man not let his son be interviewed by investigators. The special prosecutor, Jerry Phillips, said Friday that he expected to file a juvenile petition next week against at least one suspect. Payne was defeated in his bid for a second term by fellow Republican Janna Lindig, who is unopposed Nov. 6. Neither Payne nor his attorney could be reached Friday. The girl's mother filed a complaint with the state bar against Payne, said Steve Schaefer, the woman's lawyer. “They are pursuing it,” he said Friday. Detroit judge who sent photo upsetting to bailiff's husband censured DETROIT -- Third Circuit Court Judge Wade McCree sent a naked picture of himself to a female court bailiff. Apparently she didn't mind, but her husband did, so he gave it to us and we gave it to you and now the Michigan Supreme Court has given it back to Judge McCree, publicly censuring him Wednesday for judicial misconduct. . . . udge McCree wouldn't come out of his chambers for an interview, but here are a few of the court's findings. During an interview with yours truly, McCree "conducted himself in a flippant manner and did not give the interview the seriousness he should have. As a result, he brought shame and obloquy to the judiciary. For example, when discussing the digital image of himself, he said, 'There is no shame in my game.'"
