The Advocate: Judge gets a Free ride, in more ways than one

James Gill wrote in The Advocate, stating, “District Judge J. Robin Free, of Port Allen, was re-elected without opposition a few months ago, but perhaps he wouldn’t have had a free ride if his habitual disregard for the code of ethics had been public knowledge. Free is a great fan of the free ride, which is one of the reasons he now faces suspension. His attorney, Steven Scheckman, conceded at a hearing last week that Free deserves to be sanctioned for flying to Texas on a private jet and accepting various favors provided by an attorney who had just won $1.2 million in his court.”
