How not to practice law: try to influence a judge

The St Louis Post Dispatch is reporting (here) that a prosecutor has been reprimanded for causing a mistrial in a case he was not involved. He caused the mistrial by sending the judge in the case a note that stated "Judge, you need to convict this guy. I'll explain later." The judge did not appreciate it. He declared a mistrial and reported the prosecutor to the disciplinary authorities.
