Thousands of U.S. judges who broke laws or oaths remained on the bench

US Judges who broke law still on benchJudge Les Hayes  once sentenced a single mother to 496 days behind bars for failing to  pay traffic tickets. The sentence was so stiff it exceeded the jail time  Alabama allows for negligent homicide.

Marquita  Johnson, who was locked up in April 2012, says the impact of her time  in jail endures today. Johnson’s three children were cast into foster  care while she was incarcerated. One daughter was molested, state  records show. Another was physically abused.

“Judge  Hayes took away my life and didn’t care how my children suffered,” said  Johnson, now 36. “My girls will never be the same.”
