Kent Resigns

Embattled Federal District Court Judge Samuel Kent issued his resignation on Thursday, effective at the end of June, 2009. Just last week, Judge Kent became the first sitting Federal Judge impeached by the House of Representatives in 20 years. Earlier this month Judge Kent submitted his letter of resignation to President Obama effective in one year. This would have allowed Judge Kent to continue to receive his salary and health insurance benefits. Judge Kent turned himself in to prison to begin serving his 33 month sentence just a couple of weeks ago. The United States Senate had begun to prepare for a trial after the Articles of Impeachment were delivered from the House.
