Judge Fredrick Alan adjusted the charges made to James Patterson from 5 counts of Attempted Murder on a Peace Officer to just 1, and took off all of the other charges, thus resulting in a lighter jail sentence for Patterson.

Judge Alan has been arrested under the charges of: Destruction of Evidence, Corruption, and Conspiracy. His Court Case is pending date.

The County Council is asking anyone who seeks interest in being a Judge should contact @Durake#0651 for information on how to apply.
