This man has no business being a judge. He is an arrogant, mean-spirited condescending jerk who favors the prosecution. Stay away if you can.

He is an arrogant, reactionary punk who plays favorites among attorneys, who is hostile to pro per defendants, and who defaults in the direction of power and away from liberty. He has no business being on the bench in this Republic.

This guy is a strange one. He can be very understanding to juveniles, and can go completely off the hook in all other areas. He seems to have a dislike of Caucasians, and appears to show a bias in favor of Hispanics. I have appeared before him three times, and each time has been a negative experience for me. I finally decided that I had to paper him on all future hearings.
