U.S. Judge Francisco Besosa of Puerto Rico; incompetent buffoon  


The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico presented Francisco A. Besosa with a law license in 1979 after he graduated from Georgetown University Law School.  


Former President George W. Bush was duped into appointing Francisco as Judge to the U.S. District Court of Puerto Rico in 2006.  Francisco didn’t receive the appointment because he was the most qualified attorney in Puerto Rico. He received it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


In one matter, Francisco was assigned to hear the case of Fernando Diaz-Rodrigues who was convicted at trial of one count of aiding and abetting interference with commerce by threats of violence and one count of using a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence.


In his appeal of his conviction, Fernando argued that Francisco abused his discretion when he refused to allow his attorney to withdraw. He further argued that said refusal resulted in his denial of the effective assistance of trial counsel, all in violation of the Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution


The Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Fernando’s conviction due to Judge Besosa’s refusal to allow him to retain new counsel and without conducting any type of inquiry into his conflict with his then attorney.


Of course, Judge Besosa doesn’t much give a damn about following the law and/or being reversed. He knows that no federal judge has ever been tossed off the bench for being a Certified Dumbo. Moreover, he isn’t concerned that the taxpayers will have to pay for his idiotic conduct since Fernando must now be retried before a jury.


As we speak (ca. March 2017), Judge Besosa continues to sit as a U.S. District Court judge in San Juan Puerto Rico.
