Massachusetts Judge Faces Federal Charges For Blocking Immigration Arrest

According to Reuters, federal prosecutors charged a Massachusetts judge with conspiracy and obstruction, saying she blocked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer from arresting an illegal immigrant at a 2018 court proceeding.

The state Supreme Judicial Court suspended Joseph without pay following the charges.
