A sad day in the Harris County Courthouse

I feel like the Houston, Harris County Courthouse is mourning today. The courthouse is a closed knit group of people. Most people respect each other and wish the best for everyone. It pains us when someone goes through a difficult period. Thus, it saddens everyone that Judge Don Jackson was found guilty of official oppression when he tried to strike up a relationship with a woman that was accused of DWI in his court. Judge Jackson was punished with a two year probation and has to serve 30 actual days in jail as one of the many conditions of his probation. Lastly, the judge was immediately barred from his position that he has had for the last 18 years. What a terrible way to end the year. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
