What others have said about Hon. Samuel Goodman



Comment #: AZ660
Completely biased judge with no inclination to review video proof or witness statements. Allowed for out of range statements from deputy that conflicted with known and video evidence. Did not allow explanation of action by a retire Military police office being stalked by a family member of a death row inmate. Failed to even acknowledge that the charges should have been enhanced due to victim was disabled and threats were made in front of a minor, let alone the threats were to a retired corrections officer by a family member of a death row inmate.. Ignored the fact that the defendant had called MCSO TWICE and made threats that were acted on with no action by MCSO after calls were made and deputy swore on stand that he did not take any actions.the most abysmal ruling I have ever witnessed in over 22 years of military and civilian peace officer duties. I look forward to his defending his actions in a judicial review.
