Former judge sits on the other side of the bench

A former Pennsylvania state court judge is sitting on the other side of the bench this month, facing charges of six counts of money laundering and three counts of mail fraud. In 2007, Michael Joyce was forced to retire from his position after a grand jury indictment for falsely claiming back and neck pain to receive insurance money. He collected $440,000 from a two car accident, then used the money to purchase a new motorcycle, hot tub, and make down payments on a new house and an airplane. Read more here at the IFB Web News. Joyce faces up to twenty years for each mail fraud charge, 10 years for each money laundering charge and a maximum fine of $250,000.
