Judge Timothy J. Wilson of St. Louis, Missouri willingly and knowingly abused his office and engaged in willful misconduct and conduct that brings the judiciary into disrepute by disavowing murderer Jason Stockley. Former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley shot and killed Anthony Lamar Smith while establishing premeditation, planting false evidence, falsifying records, and abuse of power on December 20, 2011 in St. Louis, Missouri. He made threats such as: "We're killing this motherfucker, don't you know" and planted a gun in the dead victim's car afterwards. (The victim's DNA was not found on the gun but Stockley's DNA was.)
The Commission on Retirement, Removal and Discipline has authority to investigate complaints involving the following: Willful misconduct in office. Willful and persistent failure to perform duties. Habitual intemperance (e.g. alcohol or drug abuse). Permanent disabilities that interfere with judicial duties. A violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Conduct that brings the judiciary into disrepute.
The Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel is an agency of the Missouri Supreme Court and is responsible for investigating allegations of misconduct by lawyers, prosecuting the cases where a lawyer’s misconduct poses a threat to the public or to the integrity of the legal profession, and maintaining current records of disciplinary information for lawyers licensed to practice law in Missouri.
When lawyers enter the practice of law in Missouri, they obligate themselves to uphold the law and to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct governing members of The Missouri Bar. The purpose of attorney discipline is to protect the public and the administration of justice from attorneys who have not discharged their professional duties to clients, the public, the legal system, and the legal profession. The professional conduct of attorneys is governed by Supreme Court Rule 4 and the discipline process is governed by Supreme Court Rule 5.
The above government offices have the power to impeach and/or remove him from office as a judge and a lawyer. Judge Timothy J. Wilson has caused the loss of public trust in his ability to abide by and uphold his judicial and ethical duties.
