U.S. Judge Richard Jackson of Denver; moronic loser

 
The state of Colorado presented Richard Brooke Jackson with a law license in 1972 after he graduated from Harvard Law School.
  
In 2011, President Obama was duped into appointing Jackson as a District Court Judge despite the fact that he was sixty-three (63) years old at the time. At the time Jackson had been serving as a Colorado District Court judge for 13 years.
 
Since when is it appropriate to appoint someone to the federal bench when he/she is nearing retirement age? Apparently, Jackson’s primary concern is to engage in “double-dipping” by collecting state and federal pensions in the future that will likely $250,000 a year.
 
In October 2013, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals found that Judge Jackson had abused his discretion in regards to the sentence he imposed upon a man who took a plea agreement in regards to a drug and weapons case.
 
Jackson sentenced Tyre Haggerty to 72 months in prison after he pleaded guilty possession with intent to sell methamphetamine and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The sentencing guidelines considered by Jackson called for Mr. Haggerty to truthfully admit the conduct regarding the offense. Jackson then granted a reduction that brought the sentencing range between 63 and 78 months in prison.
 
However, the Moron refused to grant another sentence decrease based “entirely on the fact that the defendant agreed to plead guilty, permitting the government to avoid preparing for trial and permitting it and the court to allocate resources more efficiently.” The Moron then said at the sentencing hearing:
 
“On the contrary, I think trials are the way that our system wants us to resolve these cases and that they are a good thing, not a bad thing. I do not think that saving the government the task of preparing for trial is a benefit that's entitled to any weight.”
 
Had the Moron granted the decrease for pleading guilty and avoiding trial as he was statutorily required to do, the sentence would have dropped to between a minimum of 57 to 71 months.
 
In reversing the Moron’s decision and sending it back to him, the Court of Appeals stated:
  • It was clear Jackson didn’t consider the guideline in denying the sentencing reduction, which was in fact recommended by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
  • “Instead, the court [Jackson] merely articulated its own personal belief a defendant should not be rewarded for avoiding trial.”
Unfortunately for the good folks living in the Denver area, they’ll likely have to put up with Dick the Moron for another 20 years.
 
As we speak (ca. December 2013), Judge Jackson continues to sit on the bench as a U.S. District Court Judge in Denver, Colorado.
