    Newton Judge Appears In Court After Obstruction Charges

    A Massachusetts judge indicted on charges that she helped a defendant evade an immigration enforcement agent wants her pay reinstated while she fights the allegations.

    Newton District Judge Shelley Joseph was suspended without pay last month after she was charged with helping a man who was living in the U.S. illegally to slip out a back courthouse door to avoid a waiting federal agent.

    Joseph has pleaded not guilty.

    Joseph's lawyers say in a motion filed Thursday in Massachusetts' highest court that it's unfair and unprecedented for her salary to be taken away when she has not been found to have committed any wrongdoing.
