    Oklahoma County Judge Charged With Fraud/Perjury

    Judge Bass-LeSure was assigned to hear the murder trial of OK City pharmacist Ersland. She recused herself from that trial.


    Oklahoma County District Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure was accused in a felony fraud charge Friday of collecting state funds to care for twins that she secretly gave to her bailiff's sister.

    Bass-LeSure, 43, and her husband, Karlos Antonio LeSure, 46, cheated the state out of public funds for three years, prosecutors allege.

    The judge faces 30 counts of making a fraudulent claim and two counts of perjury. Her husband faces two counts of making a fraudulent claim and two counts of perjury. She said Friday at the courthouse the accusations are not true.

    She can continue to serve as a judge while the charge is pending unless the Court on the Judiciary takes action against her, officials told The Oklahoman. She is likely to be reassigned to handle civil cases.
    Although she has been charged but not convicted it is my opinion she should be removed from the bench until the charges are resolved. Her demonstrated lack of ethics in defrauding the government calls into question her ability to act as a judge.

    The pharmacist case is a cursed one, the defense attorney is giving everyone hell, and it seems he is not going to rest until he moves the trial to a more friendly territory or a judge he likes, even the jurors are going to be running for cover on this one.

    The whole thing is really sad IMO. Judges are in our society the wise men/women

    Oh? In most cases aren't they really just elected officials with a law degree?

    You are correct, I'm pointing to the fact they are supposed to be, wise.
    In some jurisdictions a person doesn't have to be a lawyer to be a judge and it is not a prerequisite to be a lawyer to be a judge in the Supreme court.

    Here in Oklahoma there was a Judge, playing with a sex toy apparently while he was imparting justice, kinky.
