Comment #: CA7639
After reading the previous comment, looks like I'm not alone. Yes I agree, Judge Hutson is a terrible judge. She ruled against me even though the the other person presented no real evidence. When I presented specific evidence in my defense she chose to ignore it. Honestly, I felt discriminated against.To my attorney & I it seemed so obvious, but Ms Hutson simply went on her "feelings". Legally, Judge Hutson is a joke and has business being a judge or even an attorney for that matter. I wish lie detectors were allowed as evidence because I'd take one in a minute.

Sounds like this half witted stupid ignorant infidel they call a judge is pure puke. She should be jailed for being a fraud. Sorry your client had to suffer from this witch.

Absolutely surprised how BAD Judge Hutson was. My client was so clearly innocent, the prosecutorial misconduct was rampant, and my client was fully acquitted in a 2 strikes case very quickly despite this judge's bad rulings, stupid comments and mistreatment of defense counsel, defense witnesses and perjury by the prosecution and their witnesses. After acquittal this judge called in officers of the law to "deal with defense counsel" because she did not understand she had NO jurisdiction to send my client back to the jail... per PC 1165, he can walk out with me! She refused, then disappeared and sent out a law enforcement negotiator.
