Judge Keith Blackman of Jonesboro, AR; moronic bully

 

The state of Arkansas presented Keith Blackman with a law license in 1980 after he graduated from the University of Arkansas Law School.

 

The Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission found Judge Blackman guilty of the following misconduct after he ascended to his judicial office.

 

  • Instituted illegal policy of imposing $35 fee against defendants who changed plea from “not guilty” to “guilty”
  • Ignorantly referred to $35 fee as a witness fee
  • Eventually changed description “witness fee” to “contempt fee”
  • Laughingly claimed reason for $35 contempt fee for changing plea was for the purpose of saving taxpayer funds
  • Conduct failed to recognize the cloak of innocence for all defendants
  • Failed to recognize the state’s constitutional burden to prove a defendant’s guilt
  • Failed to act fairly and impartially
  • Failed to comply with Arkansas law
  • Violated defendants’ constitutional due process rights
  • Failed to act with due diligence (slacker)

As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Judicial Commission punished Judge Blackman by gifting him with a complimentary admonition.

 

As we speak (ca. December 2014), Judge Blackman continues to sit as a Craighead County District Court Judge in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
