Former St. Clair County Judge Mike Cook pleaded guilty to federal guns and heroin charges Friday after a friend and fellow judge died of an overdose.

Cook hopes the court will accept an 18-month jail sentence for his charges: a misdemeanor heroin possession and a felony for being a drug user in possession of firearms. (Fun fact: While being arraigned for these charges, Cook was wearing cutoff shorts and a "Bad is my middle name" t-shirt.)

As part of his plea, Cook agrees to surrender his cache of weapons, including ammunition, telescopic rifle and shotgun sights, and other accessories.
