What others have said about Hon. Nancy Moate Ley



Comment #: FL5577
This judge cares nothing about rehabilitation for human beings. It's sad that she could not make a judgement without seeing only what she wanted. Her as well as anyone else has and will forever make mistakes in life. People learn they don't have to be locked up for years to prove she has the power to do it. I Thank God I'm not from that State. As the State I live in they believe in helping , but putting a person in a State prison for 18 years what are the reasons ? Yr a very cold hearted person not just a Judge. Sit at yr thrown now, but some day you'll sit at the right hand and must answer to all the things you have done to people that could of been helped.

Poor sense of judging character,, pathetic decision was huge negative impact and allowed the total destruction of a little girl by the socially dis functional biological mother and socio pathic step father keep primary custody ,, if judge key has any level of concern send me an email... Case from 2003,, judge let had a problem with pictures of unkept yard,,, you allowed the mother and step father to destroy the real fathers relationship and the child turn into a Xerox copy of the mother,, baker acted and all!

I sat in her courtroom and I was very shocked how she handled herself. She was very rude And acted like she didn't want to listen to the case. And had already made up her mind to her decision. Before she had heard any testimony. We are told that we can trust our legal system but after watching this judge I don't.

I think this is a judge that is very rude, she believes she is above making fare decisions , she is not about rehabilitation anyone, from what I seen. She glares at the people, she falls asleep in her court room listening to sides. She acts like she would be any place but that court room. She is only interest she has is locking a person up. She is not fare , and her sentence are at her pleasure. I've never watched a judge before that rolls her eyes twirls her been looks up looks down. Like is this ever going to end. A very unfair judge to say the least. Very sad for Florida and the people that need help.i deeply understand the law and justice should be served, but surly there is a better way than her way. It's really a shame.

Judge Nancy Ley is pretty fair. If you ever spend any amount of time in jail you ill hear others call her Ley em down ley however when you meet her she is extremely fair and cuts right to the point, no bull crap. I have much respect for her as a Judge. She is extremely realistic and just wants what is right and best. If you are a defendant in her room just be honest and comply with the rules and you will be fine she will not mess with you as other judges may.

Somehow she has taken on the role of prosecutor, as opposed to being a judge, and remaining neutral.
