Harris County judge sentenced to 30 days in jail
In a sad end to a judicial career, Judge Donald Jackson, who was convicted of official oppression last Friday, was sentenced to 2 years probation, with 30 days in the county jail as a condition, fined $4,000 and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service for trying to solicit a romantic relationship from a DWI client in exchange for appointing her a new attorney.

Judge Ellis also ruled that Jackson must leave the bench pending appeal.
