reports that Judge Jerome Winsberg lit into the former Judge, lambasting him for his breach of the public trust, and sentenced him to 3 months in jail for the misdemeanor embezzlement.
The underlying crimes involved monies the Louisiana Supreme Court reimbursed Judge Roe for legal seminars the Judge attended as part of his continuing legal education. The monies were supposed to be paid over to the Parish accounts, Roe instead kept the money. Now get this--the misappropriation came to light only after Roe ordered an audit of the accounts when he correctly suspected that a probation department employee was pocketing money from parolees.
The likelihood that Judge Roe will get his license back, slim to none.
