Well, I'm not prepared to assume a judge committed a criminal offence without seeing strong evidence of it.

And, broader rights of appeal would achieve the goal you seek: establishing uniform standards for sentencing, based on legal rulings from the appellate courts, rather than each judge assessing whether a particular sentence will cause outrage in the court of public opinion.
