This judge lied over and over on record to get me sent to prison, even though I was acting as pro per in a 50-years-to-life case. This judge forced me to go to trial in jail clothes, against my loud protests, causing me to receive an 11-to-1 verdict in favor of guilty. In my next trial, after I made sure this judge did not do this again and I was allowed to go to trial in civilian clothes, I was found not guilty in just 90 minutes. Also, if I was found not guilty in only 90 minutes, what was it this judge could not see in the 2 years I spent in jail about my absolute innocence that a jury of 12 people could see in just 90 minutes? The truth is that this judge knew full well I was innocent the whole time, but was doing a favor for police friends of the alleged victims by denying me all my rights. I have all the proof on record, but I can do nothing against this bad judge as of now.

An excellent judge. Smart, pleasant, and kind, and this is why most prosecutors dislike her. I wish every judge were like her.

Pleasant and smart judge. Urges parties to problem-solve, but not reluctant to make decisions when the parties fail to reach resolution. Would appear overly reluctant to impose punatives when they are clearly warranted.
