So the person who took the alleged bribe is in prison, but folks who allegedly gave him the bribe are facing absolutely no charges, and I think one of the alleged folks who gave Judge Maggio the bribe is still on the state payroll?? Is that right??

All involved Morton ,Baker, and this scumbag should have already be doing time and the original lawsuit damages /award been paid. Justice for the wronged.

After murder and rape, I don't think there is a more serious crime than a judge taking a bribe. Keep his sorry self in jail!
