Manhattan Judge Disrobes Himself After Porn Bust

James Gibbons, "a cleavage-crazed criminal court judge -- who fathered a son with a young Legal Aid lawyer," according to the Daily News, quit after officials found a huge porn stash on his work computer. Making matters worse, he was on paternity leave when the images were discovered.

"He was a very careful judge on the law," lawyer Adam Freedman told the Daily News. "If he was using his state-issued computer for illegal activities, it would be uncharacteristic, considering how careful he is on the law."

Could this be a case of a computer virus or a horny janitor? It would be a long shot, but it's impossible to nail Gibbons down just yet, given the current reports.

Criminal charges have not yet been brought against the ex-prosecutor who spent part of his career convicting rapists and killers, but the Manhattan district attorney's office is looking into the situation and checking whether the women in the photos are underage.

Upcoming Events

"There was a lot of porn on his computer -- all young women," an investigator told the Daily News. "Lots of crotch and cleavage shots."

We're glad the investigator was able to identify the parts in question -- all in a day's work, right?
