Update on Judge Samuel Kent

Last week in this blog I mentioned the historic indictment of federal Judge Samuel Kent on charges involving abusive sexual conduct. Today Judge Kent entered a federal courtroom -- as a defendant, not as a judge -- and informed the bench that he was "absolutely, unequivocally not guilty" and that he "look[ed] very much forward to a trial on the merits of what [he] consider[ed] flagrant, scurrilous charges."

Although there may be a problem (for the federales) with at least one charge that may be time-barred, the government has continued its investigation into the judge's financial and sexual behavior.
