Court filing: Lokuta will testify on ‘apparent’ federal probe
Luzerne County Judge Ann H. Lokuta is volunteering to testify about her participation in an “apparent” federal investigation related to the county courthouse, according to a document filed Friday in the judge’s misconduct case.
The document outlines the reasons why Lokuta plans to call 70 witnesses in her case, but does not divulge the focus of the “apparent” investigation or what division of county government, if any, may be involved.
The rumor of a FBI probe into the doings of the Luzerne County Judges have been rampant for some time. Some of it is just crazy with reports of 30 agents hanging around the courthouse like that many strange faces wouldn't be noticed. There are even stories of people wearing wires talking to our local Solomons hoping to get the goods on them. There is supposed to be a Grand Jury empaneled that will soon return indictments for influence peddling and outright bribery.
We will see.
