Description

This is a two part series, the first reveals that a judge who was also a realtor, struck a deal with a teenager's father to sell a mansion to reduce the boys' sentencing.The second part deals with how the teenager who was accused of assault was arrested again a month later and his case was to go before the same judge. But due to the real estate dealings, the case passed on to another judge. This caused the reporter to ask for the previous case to be re-opened on the pretext that the accused received preferential treatment in the first hearing due to the financial dealings.
