night court

An assistant clerk at the Chelsea District Court was arrested by the FBI this morning on charges that he had sex with an accused prostitute in an empty courtroom while promising to help get a charge against her dismissed.

James “Jim” Burke, 41, of Chelsea, made a brief appearance this morning before US Magistrate Judge Timothy S. Hillman, who released him on $10,000 unsecured bond and ordered him to return to federal court March 26 for a probable cause hearing.

This guy obviously never watched an episode of “Night Court”. Everybody knows that all of the hanky panky is supposed to go down in the Judge’s chambers while he’s down in the cafeteria eating Jello with Bull Shannon.
