William Jacobs
Convicted child molester William Jacobs agreed to disbarment yesterday, according to a press release issued by the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility.

Jacobs, a former teacher and one-time Minneapolis Parks Police chief, pled guilty to molesting children last month and was sentenced to 18 years in prison. Dozens of boys reported Jacobs' crimes to authorities, who discovered over 140,000 images of child pornography on his computer.

The disgraced ex-lawman was first admitted into the bar in May 1983, although he has now been disbarred due to his criminal sexual convictions.

After Jacobs' sentencing last month, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman seemed to celebrate the likelihood that Jacobs would die in prison. From our coverage at the time:

"Mr. Jacobs is now gone," Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said. "Eighteen years, folks, is a long time, and 10 years probation -- he's 68. You can do the math. It's what he deserves. You are responsible for what you do, with some exceptions. Mr. Jacobs doesn't fit those exceptions."

What a fucking dirty bastard.  I am so sick of these shit cops in the cities.   All they do is bully the public and assume everyone is a criminal even when they are not and then have 140,000 sexy photos of kids on their computers.  WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THE LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THIS METRO?


Did you really just say "sexy photos of kids"? What is wrong with you, sir?
