Comment #: FL5979
I would join with the other commenters and say that Judge Floyd is like having another prosecutor, but that's not true, because his prosecutors are generally much more fair and even handed than Judge Floyd. Judge Floyd came up as a prosecutor and worked with Angela Corey. It's obvious that judge Floyd has chosen to perpetuate the poor/ineffective prosecutorial style that Angela Corey established here in Duval County. Hopefully the voters will do the same to him as they did to Angela.

Judge Floyd is the second prosecutor in the room. If you're a criminal defense lawyer, be prepared to be rushed to conclude your client's case. Also be prepared for the worst display of prosecution bias you will ever see from a sitting judge, period. Someone should run against him. Any opponent would have full support of the bar. In the meantime, hopefully he will stay in county court where he can't do too much harm. You've been warned.

Judge Floyd does not like criminal defense attorneys. He was appointed to his seat straight out of the State's Attorney's office and its really like he never left. He generally oversees all of his cases and likes to help the prosecution whenever possible. He also has a tendency to blame defendants and defense attorneys when the state's attorney screws something up. Appearing in Judge Floyd's court is like going up against two prosecutors.
