A Clay County attorney who prosecuted traffic violators on fictitious charges has been named a district associate judge in northwest Iowa. …

This has to be a big joke.
Politics as usual…I would appreciate a little more information as to who appointed him, etc…if that isn't asking too much. Thanks
Here you go. Never say that crime doesn't pay. The Iowa Supreme Court Grievance Commission later reviewed Borth's conduct and determined that he had violated three elements of Iowa's Code of Professional Responsibility for Lawyers.
The commission concluded that Borth should be reprimanded but did not deserve greater punishment because he had "improved the efficiency of the court system" and "court trials were avoided."
Borth was not available for comment Friday.
At the time, Borth said that he was unaware the plea agreements were inappropriate. But the Supreme Court rejected that defense and said a trained professional such as Borth could not "insulate himself from censure simply by claiming ignorance."
The court agreed with the commission's recommendation for a reprimand, noting that Borth had no record of past ethical violations and "enjoyed a good reputation in the legal community."
The five-judge panel that selected Borth for the position of district associate judge included Nancy Whittenburg. As a Clay County magistrate, Whittenburg approved many of the cowl-lamp plea agreements before she was promoted to district judge.
As a judge, Borth will hear serious and aggravated misdemeanor cases and will preside over civil cases involving claims of $10,000 or less.
The other finalists considered for the judge's post were Storm Lake attorney Dave Patton and Ida County Attorney Kristal Phillips.
District associate judges are paid about $122,000.
So here it is. One member of the panel that seated him, was the magistrate who approved his false charges. They both need to be ridden out of town on a rail. I just hope they see this.
Sounds about right. The more false accusations and convictions, the higher you will go up the ladder of success in the criminal justice system.
Only about 10% of the lawyers are crooked and most can be rehabilitated to become productive attorneys.
I understand that it was so cold in Clay County last evening, that the attorneys were walking around with their hands in their own pockets. Another example of social justice and another example of rewarding a person for being unethical & corrupt. I'm sure his next appointment will be White House approved.
I don't think so. The hunt for this kind of scumbag has already been started, but will be slow because Eric Holder has trouble coping with more and more reports of prosecutorial misconduct.
I wonder why his name is not published ?
Got it: Charles Borth. Another crook who made it on the backs of innocent people.
Sorry, I should have included his name with the excerpt. Here's a link to a profile page for Charles K. Borth
That's ok. A little independent research is good exercise.
Hey, where did my research go? Bring it back please.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
Adding to my bookmarks thanks. Needed more pictures though.
Boomarking now thanks, emailing this to my friends now.
While planning to stop smoking, I have discovered the electric cigarette. The smokeless cigarette wotks on a nicotine liquid that consists of simply nicotine. Absolutely no toxic substances all that. They’ve in a literal sense improved my life. Quitting inhaling and exhaling poisons feels completely fantastic to me!
Almost all that is on my mind is cancer sticks. I really don’t like to take a hit and if anybody offered a cigarette today, I’d definetly refuse. I am in a very horrible mood and have had trouble resting yet I understand I have to turn out to be tough. The smokeless cigarettes may help me out in the long run.
Great blog. I got a lot of effective data. I’ve been watching this technology for awhile. It’s intriguing how it keeps changing, yet some of the core components remain the same.
Ever wondered how you could create a better blog? Well i searched on google for other sites to build blogs, and guess what? I found the answer on How to Start A Blog. Give it a visit , might help you later =)
Love this piece. Keep on sharing. I’m an admirer.
