Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) on Monday called for a judge to be temporarily removed from the bench after she allegedly helped an undocumented immigrant avoid Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.
Baker told reporters that he didn’t think Newton District Judge Shelley Joseph should hear criminal cases until the federal grand jury investigation against her has concluded, The Boston Globe reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
Baker appointed Joseph to the bench last year. He called the allegations against her “extremely troubling,” telling the paper that Joseph may have violated court policies.
A federal grand jury is investigating Joseph after Jose Medina-Perez, an undocumented immigrant, was allegedly allowed to leave out of a back door of the courthouse in April while ICE agents were waiting to arrest him.
