The Fixer

The Louisiana Supreme Court has permanently disbarred a former Baton Rogue prosecutor convicted of fixing tickets:

In October 2009, respondent pleaded guilty to federal charges that he
accepted bribes in exchange for “fixing” criminal and traffic matters pending in the
Baton Rouge City Court. According to the factual basis for the guilty plea,
between 2006 and 2009, respondent, a senior prosecutor at the Baton Rouge City
Court, conspired with others to engage in bribery by soliciting and accepting
payments from individuals with matters pending before that court with the promise
that the charges would be dismissed or otherwise “fixed.” On one occasion in May
2009, respondent received cash to dismiss a criminal charge against an undercover
FBI agent.

The Advocate reports that the prosecutor accepted over $30,000 in bribes and was caught in Operation Illegal Motion. (Mike Frisch)
