TRIED AND CONVICTED OF A CRIME WITHOUT A PROSECUTING ATTORNEY OR A DEFENSE ATTORNEY? IN THE UNITED STATES?
It’s pretty hard to believe, but apparently it happened. The culprit is a (former) municipal judge in Linden, New Jersey. The defendants in the trial that he conducted without a prosecutor or a defense attorney present are now suing him for violating their civil rights. Yeah, I think there’s a pretty good case to be made that that’s what he did.
