A judge from the Navajo Nation will be forced to resign and pay a measly $25 fine after being found guilty of abusing his office.

Former judge Roy Tso interfered in a burglary case involving relatives and attempted to bribe a prosecutor

According to KLFY, Tso was given the light sentence last week by Shiprock, New Mexico District Court Judge Genevieve Woody, refusing the suggestion of prosecutors to give Tso the maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $25,000 fine.

Despite the recommendation, Woody claims the $25 dollar fine -a mere 0.1% of the originally suggested fine- is fair as the former judge has been subjected to leave without pay.

Tso maintains that he has done nothing wrong and is coordinating an appeal with his attorney.
