Texas Judge resigns after being caught texting instructions to prosecutors to help win convictions

As it turns out this was an old story from last October and I just got wind of it this morning, here's the jist:
Texas district Judge Elizabeth E. Coker is stepping down from the bench after being caught engaging in a massive perversion of justice. A whistleblower revealed that Corker was sending text messages to prosecutors with suggestions on questions to ask in court in order to secure a conviction.
How many retrials would we see as a result? Also I wonder how many people when they hear about this believe that SHE should be sent to jail for her improprieties?

Another odd court system related case from Texas and more recent, it involves a man who has paid too much child support to his child. He does what a man should do for his children and gets punished. A bit odd I think.
