Subject: Addressing Concerns Regarding Judge Steven Mapes and Unethical Practices in San Bernardino County CPS Court

Dear Members of the Public,

I am writing to address concerns that have been raised regarding Judge Steven Mapes and the practices within the San Bernardino County CPS court system. It has come to our attention that there have been allegations of misrepresentation and falsification of facts within the court, particularly involving Judge Mapes and social worker [Redacted by Ed.].

We take allegations of unethical behavior very seriously, especially when they involve individuals entrusted with the well-being of families and children. It is imperative that our legal system operates with integrity and fairness, and any breach of trust undermines the very foundation of justice.

While it is important to note that these are allegations and not proven facts, we are committed to thoroughly investigating any claims of misconduct. The integrity of our court system relies on transparency and accountability, and we will not tolerate any form of corruption or abuse of power.

It is crucial for members of the public to come forward with any information or evidence that may shed light on these allegations. Your input is invaluable in ensuring that our legal system serves the best interests of all individuals involved.

Rest assured, we are actively addressing these concerns and taking appropriate action to uphold the principles of justice and fairness. We remain dedicated to serving the community and fostering trust in our legal institutions.

This judge is [Redactd by Ed.] an has stolen my children from me. I am American Indian and this judge has violated all of my constitutional rights. I was targeted and tooken advantage of for not knowing what my rights are. Assigned pro bono lawyers of the juvenile court are also involved in their legal kidnapping of our children. This judge is a fraud and so is his buddy Judge Christopher Marshall! How can a juvenile dependency judge and a child support judge host adoption fundraisers with the same children they ordered to be removed from their homes? If you ask me they were removed and not returned home in order to have children to adopt out for their little campaign fundraising events. This judge was the same judge who arraigned me on a criminal DUI charge back in. 2014 in Fontana, then he set my bail at 100,000.00 dollars for my first DUI ever and he ordered my children to be removed from my care. Then judge mapes transfereed my criminal case to Rialto and opened a CFS case in San Bernardino. This judge then proceeded to be the judge in the CFS Case in 2014. He never allowed my kids to return home although I had two more children during the CFS case. I was allowed to keep custody of my two other children but not fit enought to have my older two returned how the fuck does that work. Then I moved to new mexico for a few years and when I came back to california I was trying to get help from the county and was denied and my benefits were delayed while I waited for them this judge sat in the Victorville court and was a temporary judge and issued warrants for my children to be removed from my custody because a CFS worker said I was missing and my children were too just cuz i refused to speak to her in 2019. Then this judge goes to San. Bernardino court juvenile dependency and sits as the judge in. My CFS for my children he had removed from me while we were full-time residents at a women with children recovery home. He successfully stole my four babies and he gets away with it.

This sorry excuse of a judge is the worst (redacted by Ed.) Narcissist who doesn't know what is going on in his courtroom half the time. He expects everyone to tell the truth, but when social workers come in with blatant lies, he dismisses them and overlooks it. It's criminal! The way his operates i(redacted) and would never hold up in any other court. He is destroying families with his egotistical biased opinions instead of based on facts. He needs to be taken off the bench. Karma will catch up to him and the social workers (redacted).

In my opinion this judge is corrupted and does not follow the law. Violates your constitutional rights and discriminates against Native American Woman. The judge should be investigated for all the illegal judgements he has entered for his own personal greed and gain. He has resources but uses them for the wrong reasons.

This Judge is heartless. Does not care about the welfare or well being of children in the San Bernardino county area. My granddaugher was abused in a foster home and he moved her at his pace further endangering her life. I even submitted photos of her injuries and he still ruled in the favor of CFS. This is why so many children are dying in the custody of CFS.
