    Oklahoma judge who sent more than 500 texts during murder trial resigns..

    An Oklahoma judge who sent more than 500 texts during a murder trial resigns..




    An Oklahoma judge agreed to step down Friday after she was caught sending hundreds of texts from the bench while overseeing a murder trial in the killing of a 2-year-old boy, including messages that mocked prosecutors and were sprinkled with emojis.


    District Judge Traci Soderstrom also agreed to not seek judicial office again in Oklahoma under a proposed settlement agreement filed with the Oklahoma Court on the Judiciary. She had faced removal from the bench over accusations that included gross neglect of duty, oppression in office, lack of proper temperament and failure to supervise her office.


    Soderstrom had been scheduled to go on trial in a special court starting Monday.


    I promised to uphold the Constitution in a fair, even-handed and efficient manner, Soderstrom said in a resignation letter given to local media. I believe that I have done so. However, being human, I have also faltered.

    For some reason after I read the title of the thread and had not yet read the post. I said to myself, "I bet she's a woman."....What misogynistic pig I am!

    Yes. Yes, you are. You should meet the same fate as Hadj Mohammed Mesfewi did.

    Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.
