      O.C. Judge Is Charged With Possession of Child Porn
      Los Angeles Times, 11/10/01
      Courts: Ronald C. Kline is placed under house detention. ...

      An Orange County Superior Court Judge was charged Friday with possession of child pornography and placed under house detention at the urging of federal prosecutors, who said he poses a threat to the public.
      Judge Ronald C. Kline, who is seeking reelection next year, surrendered to authorities and was ordered by a federal judge to wear an electronic monitoring device.
      Investigators allege in court papers that Kline kept a diary in which he wrote about his sexual attraction to teenage boys and his visits to shopping malls, Little League games and the shower area of an athletic club. ....
      Kline's surrender follows a search of his Irvine home Tuesday. Investigators said they uncovered five images on computer diskettes of young boys engaging in sexual acts. ....
      According to court documents, Kline admitted that he sometimes views illegal images on his computer at home. ....
      In arguing that Kline's contact with the public should be kept at a minimum, assistant U.S. Atty. Deidre Elliot referred to the diary, which investigator found at his home. A customs investigator described the diary in court papers, claiming that Kline wrote about "seeking contact" with boys. ....

      The above report reminds me of a report a number of years ago where a San Diego judge plead guilty to three counts of child molestation with  three different boys and was fined $150 per count. The single offense rate was less than you would now pay for running a red light at a photo intersection in Los Angeles, which is $270. He even got to keep his position on the bench.
      Perhaps, now the alleged offense here is taken a little more seriously as criminal conduct and unbecoming of a judge. Are they now raising the standard for judges because of more public attention on the judiciary?
