Judge William Koch, who claims (dubiously) that his surname is pronounced "Cook," was the judge who recently sentenced playground shooter August Fleming to one year of in jail and probation, provoking an outcry from the prosecutor and the general public. And this blogger.
August Fleming fired numerous shots at Folwell Park when children were present. A much stiffer sentence was expected. It doesn't seem likely that bribery was involved so simple judicial mush-headedness is the only plausible explanation.
For those who would like to familiarize themselves with what, exactly, August Fleming did, click here for the criminal complaint.
By the way, the complaint notes that Fleming is a resident of...
...3846 Colfax Ave. N. This is a rental owned by Equitron Holdings, LLC. I'm guessing the name is the product of a computer program which allows users to ask for a name that conveys certain characteristics. In this case, the goal was to come up with a name that sounded not only scammy, but scammy in a futuristic sort of way. The Hawthorne Hawkman on North By Northside blog has documented this entity, extensively, click here for his blog post.
At one time, Equitron Holdings was the owner of 3807 Aldrich Ave. N., the site of a police siege back in March of this year.
I haven't found much of a history for 3846 Colfax Ave. N., though it did appear once before on this blog in a jailhouse roster posting as the listed address for a guy named Chris Lee Walker.
JNS blog looks forward to August Fleming getting in some kind of trouble in the very near future thanks to this incredibly bad decision by Judge Koch. Truly an example of the little Koch head thinking for the big head.
