Harris County Judge Sentenced - Judicial Career in Jeopardy

Barring an appeal of his conviction for official oppression for offereing to help a DWI defendant in his court get a dismissal of her DWI case, Judge Donald Jackson's tenure as a Harris County Judge is over.  Judge Jackson was sentenced to probation that includes 30 days in the Harris County jail as a condition of the probation.

For what it is worth, I always liked Judge Jackson and felt like he tried to do the "right thing" in the cases that I handled in his court.  It seems that most of the lawyers that I have spoken to about Judge Jackson have said the same.  Hopefully, Judge Jackson's replacement will have a similar outlook on the law and do the "right thing" with the cases that come before him/her.
