This woman is a conceited bully. Its a known fact by every attorney who appears in her court. As an attorney I have the ability to "paper" a judge, and be moved to another courtroom. I did that to this judge, who then ORDERED me into her chambers. I softly said, "Not without a court reporter" - causing her to SQUEAL, (and change her mind). She made me sit and wait for more than 5 HOURS... at which time she announced, "I am not accepting your challenge, I am, on MY OWN motion, sending your case to another department." This is NOT legal, to ignore my challenge... but as in all things - she does not give a hoot. SHE IS STEPHANIE GEORGE. WHO appoints these idiots? and WHY?


Comment #: CA2767
This defendant's arrest history was for a DUI as a 19 year old. Their second DUI was 6 years later for driving with a BAC level of .04%. Though well below the normal limit, this violated the zero tolerance policy attached to a DUI minor offernder. The defendant was ordered to serve 30 days. They served this time and were ordered to fines and alcohol classes. The classes lapsed and a warrant was issued. The defendant in question came to the court on their own free will to pay all fines and attempt to reinstate probation/classes.

Judge George gave the defendant NO opportunity to speak, belittled them, ordered them into custody, then gave 30 more days in jail. This is a non-violent offender, with only ONE legitimate DUI. This type of reckless behavior by a JUDGE is inexcusable. This defendant does not belong with the dregs of society, filling up our jails, costing tax payers money.

This type of event is scarring, does not solve any problems, and makes our society worse off.

She should be stripped of her ability to preside over a court of law, and even her license to practice law.

Angry and irrational. Difficult to understand her thinking. Purposely forces jail for a person who is willing and able to pay all fines, in order for him to lose his job, while allowing a drunk teenager driving 95 on I5 to run free.

I see from the comment below that this woman is an angry lady yelling at everybody in court. Well I guess her apple son did not fall far from the tree. Her son has been bullying my son and other kids at his elementary middle school in Las Flores. To say that I am outraged that this woman has taught her son to act as she does to bully everyone is a mild understatement. William Kirkendale

Another angry lady trying to make herself look good by yelling at everyone in the room. More pro-prosecution than others.
