What others have said about Hon. Verna L. Carpenter


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CO273
Judge Carpenter is a judge you do do not want to upset. she will jail you in a second. she does not hear your side as a defendant and clearly has no patience. she is hostile,too candid in the form beligerent. She is not fair at all.


Comment #: CO271
Does not read motions, uses completely wrong legal grounds, biased toward prosecution, incapable of appearance of impartiality.


Comment #: CO216
This judge does not care about anything other than grinding you down to nothing. Be prepared for the harshest and most strict sentence. She hates you for being in her courtroom, and will make sure that you know she is in charge.


Comment #: CO205
This judge is cruel and heartless. Expect to get hit hard with whatever she feels like that day.
