Judge indicted for helping fugitive avoid ICE

Description:

In a move that the Massachusetts Attorney General called a "radical and politically motivated attack on our state and the independence of our courts," a judge among others has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly misleading an ICE agent and helping an undocumented immigrant evade capture. Steve Malzberg (in for Rick Sanchez) reacts.


Prosecutors say Judge Shelly Joseph helped an undocumented immigrant slip out the back door of her Newton, Massachusetts, courthouse to avoid an ICE officer.
It was Judge Judy's courtroom, but someone else took over her bench. Nicole Skinner is a University of Idaho graduate who submitted an audition video and won a contest to be Judge Judy for a day. Inside Edition's Jim Moret went behind the scenes at the show. America's most popular TV judge has been on the air 23 years and just won a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Daytime Emmy Awards. Anyone would be nervous to fill her shoes, let alone her robe.
A Massachusetts state court judge and a former court officer were indicted on obstruction of justice and other charges after allegedly helping a twice-deported undocumented defendant elude immigration authorities. CNN's Jean Casarez has more.
