Comment #: CA10122
This Judge makes it her mission to find people guilty. In traffic trials the Officer is always credible since he is trained and she always takes the officer's side. This Judge will bend over backwards to find a defendant guilty, even when the Officer's testimony is bad and the defendant has a good argument and the law on its side. Guilty, Guilty, Guilty. Stay away from this Judge if you want any chance at being found innocent.

This judge really puts her all into her work. She researches, she is thoughtful and although we have disagreed on things, I cannot fault her as a judge. She is excellent.


Comment #: CA1825
I can't believe how rude this judge is. She must have stated, "NOT MY PROBLEM" 100 x while I watched her 1/2 assed attempt at justice. Isn't it her problem if it lands on her desk? What a travesty and waste of time to have this imcompetence in our courtroom! INEXCUSABLE!!!!
