Comment #: CA7931
He will give your client upper term if they are found guilty after trial. Not fair at all in sentencing. automatic 170.6 for me if I'm set for trial on a felony case

Comment #: CA6929
one of the most egotistical, unfair and pro prosecution judges on the bench. Was the media hack for the prior DA before being anointed to the bench. Avoid at all costs.

Long time prosecutor and you can see it. Thinks highly of himself and has an ego. Pleasant enough to deal with, but since he was in sex crimes unit at DA's office, I'd avoid him for a sex case.

Nice guy, who believes he is fair, but who cannot shake the instincts and assumptions of his long history as a prosecutor.

Rating:Not Rated
Pleasant to lawyers and litigants but arrogant, ill-informed and heavily biased towards the prosecution
