Judge Caught Trading Sex With Young Male Criminals For Lighter Sentences

by Dan Tracer May 10, 2016


An Arkansas judge has been running a side-business trading sex with vulnerable young male defendants in exchange for lenient sentencing.

Joseph Boeckmann served as a district judge in Cross County, Arkansas for six years, publicly presenting himself to be the very embodiment of moral high ground, deciding the fates of those who passed through his courtroom.

But now it’s Boeckmann who stands accused of a crime — reducing the sentences of young men, at least one of whom was under 18, who helped him with “personal work” underneath his judge’s robe.

The Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission shined a light on the dirty scheme: Boeckmann told young males to contact him at his home to complete “community sentences” like trash pickup, but once they arrived they’d be given a much different task to service their community.

In exchange for sexual favors, he’d reduce their court fines or throw them out altogether.

Boeckmann was also quite the avid amateur photographer, and would require many of the men to pose for nude pictures, hundreds of which were recovered off his hard drive.

Oh, and he had props, too.

The Commission said, “They all depict young men, many naked who are in various poses inside the judge’s home and outside in his yard,” adding, “There are numerous photos of naked young men bending over after an apparent paddling.”

In one case, Boeckmann reduced a traffic fine and asked the defendant to bring three bags of cans to his house. The judge offered a drink to the defendant, referred to as W.M., then “Boeckmann informed W.M. that he needed W.M. to pull 2 cans from the bags and bend over as if he were picking up the cans.”

The judge then coached him “on how to pose and spread his legs farther apart.”

Boeckmann is also accused of seeking out “young Caucasian males” to litigate for the sole purpose of targeting them for sex.

“Beoeckmann has engaged in a consistent pattern of seeking out young Caucasian male litigants… for the purpose of forming personal, sexual relations with the litigants, thus creating a self-imposed conflict of interest for himself.”

If it’s any consolation, the judge has stepped down from his position and will never again seek employment as a local, county or state employee.
