DA Watch: Brazoria County DA Holds Back Release of Hot XXX Stuff Found On Judge's PC

There’s always a story when a judge quits his job, and this time was no different.

Back on August 29th, Brazoria County Court at Law Place 3 Judge James Blackstock resigned his bench and pled “no contest” to charges of official oppression and assault of five different women.

Allegations Involved Touching, Kissing, and Lewd Computer Stuff

Judge Blackstock had been accused of touching, kissing, and sending lewd pix via email to these five female employees of Brazoria County. There were apparently some text messages, too, and all this totalled to 14 official oppression charges against the Judge.

That’s a pretty big story right there, but that’s not the end of it.

Up in Travis County, another lawsuit has been filed – this time by Brazoria County District Attorney Jeri Yenne, asking for the court’s decision on what should be done with the data stored on Judge Blackstock’s computer per the Texas Open Records Act.

Seems the Brazoria County publication, The Facts (http://thefacts.com) and an attorney for two of the female employees are asking for this XXX stuff.

Brazoria County DA Wants A Second Opinion Before She Releases XXX Computer Data

DA Yenne already has the Attorney General’s opinion. The Attorney General of the State of Texas says fork the stuff over. That’s not enough for DA Yenne.

Instead, DA Yenne has gone to a Travis County Judge asking that judge to weigh in — why?

According to a quote in TheFacts, Yenne says that the stuff is obscenity, and that she feels the Texas Penal Code against transmitting obscenity trumps whether or not a request is valid under the Open Records Act.

Interesting to ponder: Open Records Access vs. Obscenity Laws.

And while this Travis County Judge gets down to business on making that ruling, there’s still more happening here.

Seems the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is checking into this stuff, too, and a federal court judge already issued a subpoena on the EEOC’s behalf last September. The feds got their hands on the XXX Computer Data months ago.

That must be some Hot XXX Stuff on Judge Blackstock’s hard drive, right?
