An imprisoned federal judge facing an impeachment trial in the Senate in a sexual abuse case says he will resign at the end of the month. U.S. District Judge Sam Kent produced the resignation letter when he was served with a subpoena for his impeachment trial, said Terrance Gainer, the Senate sergeant-at-arms. Kent is serving a 33-month sentence in a Massachusetts federal prison for lying to judicial investigators about sexually assaulting two women.

The House Judiciary Committee unanimously approved four articles of impeachment against U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent of Texas in an attempt to remove him from office for lying about sexually assaulting two women. If the full House approves the impeachment, the Senate would conduct the trial. The impeachment articles allege that Kent, 59, sexually assaulted two female employees and lied about the assaults to a federal court of appeals investigative committee, twice to the FBI, and to Justice Department officials.

Re George V. Kent's Nov. 13 letter ("German Monument") in which he pointedly asks, "Why single out Berlin?": Nothing would please me more than to see the people of the world's various capital cities erect just such a series of monuments as those suggested by Kent. While it has become vogue to pity Native Americans, we continue to use $20 bills with President Andrew Jackson's face on them; and though President Clinton and his ilk mouth words about "never again," few lift a finger while atrocities do occur again and again.

Wow. Now you can actually buy lunch with the increase to $15 a day for jury duty pay (July 12). Are these people serious? How about this: Compensate people to whatever their current wage is. Then at least they won't feel so insulted and the government might even get a real jury pool. KENT A. DEL ROSSO Culver City
