Judges Walker and Claville Convicted in Federal Court

Caddo Parish District Judges Michael Walker and Vernon Claville were convicted in U S District Court Saturday of taking cash bribes on 24 occasions between May and July of 2007.

The judges and spectators seemed surprised when Walker and Claville were stripped of their personal belongings and remanded to jail.
Walker and Claville were booked into Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility late Saturday.
"I am somewhat elated that finally we are at a point where I think that justice is back on an even keel in Caddo Parish," said U S Attorney Donald Washinton.
