U.S. Judge Walter Smith Jr. of Waco; pervert's punishment


The state of Texas presented Walter Scott Smith Jr. with a law license in 1966 after he graduated from Baylor University Law School.


President Ronald Reagan was duped into appointing Walt to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in 1984. Dennis didn’t get the appointment because he was the most qualified lawyer in the greater Providence area. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


For the past 34 years (1983 to 2015), Walt has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough. Apparently, no self-respecting law firm in the greater Waco area was about to offer him a good paying job.


The Judicial Council of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found Walt guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Made inappropriate and unwanted physical advances toward court employee
  • Made unwanted non-physical sexual advances toward court employee
  • Violated existing standards of behavior for federal judges (What’s new?)
  • Groped court employee in his chambers
  • Failed to abide by procedures requiring his withdrawal from a case that clearly involved a conflict of interest
  • Failed to appreciate the gravity of his inappropriate conduct
  • Allowed false assertions to be made in response to ethics compliant
  • Victim testified that when Smith invited her to his chamber, he had a “pretty strong smell” of liquor on his breath
  • When victim went to Smith’s chambers, he put his arms around her and kissed her
  • Smith sent the victim flowers and continued to make unwanted advances

Laughable punishment meted out to Smith the Perv


The comedians sitting on the 5th Circuit panel punished Smith by prohibiting him from hearing any new criminal or civil cases for a year (through December 4, 2016).


The comedians also ordered that the Perv complete at his expense a sensitivity training court “about appropriate professional interaction.” This Certified Perv is 75-years-old. It’s a little late in the game for this type of training!  An unreliable source indicated that the Perv has opted to attend the Anthony Weiner Sexual Sensitivity Institute in Brooklyn New York.


How can it be construed as punishment when Smith is given a one-year taxpayer funded vacation? And during that time he’ll still receive a salary of $199,100. Who was the buffoon that said crime doesn’t pay?


This is just another fine example of why the citizens have absolutely no faith in the manner in which federal and/or state judges are disciplined. It is undisputed that Judicial Misfits are held to a much lower standard of conduct then everyone else.


Having only judges sitting in judgment of judicial misconduct is an unmitigated joke. It would be the equivalent of limiting jurors sitting on a child molestation case to convicted pedophiles and then wondering why there are no convictions.


As we speak (ca. December 2015), Smith the Perv remains sitting as a District Court judge in Waco despite the fact he isn’t performing any services on behalf of the taxpayers.
