What others have said about Hon. Charles (Carlos) Chung



Comment #: CA38069
He must be making God really proud by partaking in an evil system of incarcerating individuals suffering from addiction. Thanks to this system, now a loved one is labelled a "felon". Can't even fight for custody now. How to win your case: be Korean/Asian, be wealthy.


Comment #: CA11887
I’m on probation because of a restraining order and first met him at church. Judge Chung is one of the most kind and humble men I've ever met in my life. God has used Judge Chung to teach me how to be more gentle with myself and others. He polished my shoes at Grace Community Church during a conference held for pastors and really cared to listen to my story. He's a good role model and serves there as an elder.

This judge is a major disappointment to the criminal justice system.He is still a prosecutor in a robe.All sense of fairness and compassion a judge must have is totally overcome by this judge's urge to railroad a defendant's right to a fair judicial proceeding and the need to promote his agenda to support,help and benefit the prosecution. Warning to all fellow defense counsels.....stay out of this judge's courtroom

Since I was involved on the Defense side of litigation - my answers are based on that fact.

Man is TOTALLY biase to all facts, activities and witnesses presented by DA's Prosecutor.

One of the worst judges I have seen in 20 years of practice; does not understand the law; friends with DA's and law enforcement who appear before him; wants to be liked by cops; never looks at both sides of issues; completly prosecution biased; strange personality appearing to have some identity issues; clearly should not be on bench.

I had one jury trial in this guy's court. He did not understand the issues and make nonstop kneejerk rulings in favor of the prosecution. It seems like he had never left the DA's office. Really an embarrassment to the bench.
