Hell of a nice guy. I don't think he knows that he is DA biased . .. . but he definitely is. Don't do a trial in this court. Plea deals normally work out just fine.

It was good to see a judge reprimand the District Attorney for unnecessary and over-zealous behavior.

If you are trying a criminal case, the only thing that this judge grants is a motion to continue. If you try a case against certain D.A.'s that he has played sports with or socialized with, then you will lose your case for sure. His best quality is that he is a very good sentencer from a defense viewpoint.

Pleasent Judge. Wears a bowtie, which may evidence individuality. As a youth traveled the state by hich-hiking.
