A recently opened search warrant reveals the evidence authorities seized when they searched former St. Clair County judge Michael Cook's hunting cabin in Pike County, and his home in Belleville.
Drugs, guns and ammunition are among the evidence discovered by federal agents during the search which came two months after Associate Judge Joe Christ died of a cocaine overdose at the cabin.
Cook was in custody at the time of the search. The Belleville News-Democrat reports that despite the lag between Christ's death and searches of Cook's cabin and Belleville home, federal agents uncovered 48 items of potential evidence, including drug paraphernalia coated in a white powder.  
Cook pleaded guilty to drug and gun charges and agreed to an 18 month sentence.  However, the federal judge presiding over the case says he's unhappy with the sentence recommended by prosecutors.  
Judge Joe Billy McDade has ordered the U.S. Probation Office to investigate, prepare and distribute a supplemental pre-sentence report. Cook is expected to be sentenced next month.
