The bigger they come...

Samuel Kent is now a former federal judge

This morning, at the federal courthouse in downtown Houston, as jury selection was scheduled to begin, Mr. Kent pled guilty to one count of obstruction of justice and resigned from the bench in exchange for los federales dropping the five counts of sexual abuse.

Sentencing is expected in May with prosecutors expected to ask Senior U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson to sentence the 59 year-old Kent to three years in prison.
