From 2007 to 2010 (and very possibly beyond) the judge had a functioning, sophisticated police radio (capable of receiving and transmitting) in his chambers where he monitored police calls in Santa Cruz County. Because he had spent some years in law enforcement he was well aware of police codes and identifiers in this small Arizona County. We are concerned that damage was or could have been done to a variety of defendants in his court based on what we consider to be very unethical and questionable behavior. Our guess is that the radio is long gone - removed by the judge to more private/hidden confines. This information is easily verifiable by employees, both past and current, former JPs Pro Temp and so on. Names and contact information is readily available.
