Judge Peyton is awful and difficult. As a judge, he is biased on the side of prosecutors, regardless of the evidence. I do have to note that he is inconsistent in his dealings with defendants, based on their educational level and/or resources. He tends to be heavy-handed in his dealings with the educated. I pity any innocent soul that stands before this judge. Some peoples' lives are turned upside-down as a matter of his pre-trial assumption of guilt. Most people hold this man in high esteem, until they actually see first-hand that this judge is really the bully in the room.

County Attorney Greg Stoltz agreed to bring a domestic violence case against me. In the police report there was not enough evidence to even proceed to a court case. At the arraignment hearing, Judge Peyton sat there and allowed the case to proceed. Then he advised me to get a court-appointed attorney. The judge should have stopped the case before I needed an attorney, since there was no evidence and the State's witness did not show up. The witness never showed up to any of the hearings. I have already sent the judge a request to have those monetary charges revoked but he denied that request. It appears to me that Pima County can bring charges against people and turn their lives upside-down, and then at the end of it all drop the charges like they're doing you a favor. The county should have to eat the court-appointed attorney fees.
