Rating:Not Rated
Did not let respondents witnesses give testimony. Said cases were taking to long and there was no time to allow it. She then stated that unless the witnesses were police officers it would not change her perspective on the matter. You could see in her face after 5 min that she was on the side of the young girl, who had done more abuse to the young male by her own testimony. Sad that life for these people are in her hands. What a let down to freedom. Just what Gov Brown wanted. Lifes stuck in the system of there control.

This judge is totally biased and incompetent. I think it's amazing how she is totally related to one of the other parties, and sides with them and thinks no one else sees it WOW you should be ashamed of yourself! Make more step families! How honorable is that ? I once saw her laughing about the shoes a man wore in court. And he did not have a one thing wrong in his case yet did not get his visitation with his child. In fact she cut him off and sided with mom in under 10min what a judge ! Oh that lil girl has daddy issues and is pregnant now ! No biggie right !?
