Judge Pat Murdoch (pictured)—Albuquerque, New Mexico's top criminal judge—was arrested yesterday and charged with raping a prostitute, which is frowned upon in judicial circles. But this isn't just your boring, run-of-the-mill judicial hooker rape case!

This story features two big bonuses for you, the shameless reader of salacious tabloid trash:

1) The rape was captured on a sex tape, somehow—a sex tape that an undercover cop purchased for $400. Guesses as to how long before that tape is leaked go in the comments.

2) Pat Murdoch apparently chose to rape an incredibly badass prostitute.

The woman told police she met with the judge about eight times and he paid her about $200 each time. She said he forced himself on her during one visit, and she returned and secretly recorded a second forced encounter.

How's that for cooperation with law enforcement, eh? Pat Murdoch also reportedly said he would "take care" of any woman who made allegations against him. If this prostitute just went ahead and tattooed "RAPIST" on Murdoch's belly after breaking into his apartment one night, she could star in a Stieg Larsson novel. Fucking hardcore.

Pat Murdoch is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
