Comment #: FL5742
Judge Belle Brotemarkle Schumann sabotaged my pro se defense when she proclaimed at 1:45 P.M. on Monday, 12 September 2016, THAT: "I'll be happy to have you come back to court each and every month until you say you're ready for trial."



Comment #: FL3290
She allowed a two-time convicted felon and batterer to go free on probation, after which he assaulted and robbed me. I find it difficult to understand the lack of intelligence necessary to allow a man convicted of drug trafficking and battery to go free, especially when he had previously committed similar offenses less than 60 days before, for which this judge also allowed him to go free. Quite frankly, this idiot is the reason that I was nearly beaten to death and then robbed by a drug-addled felon, and it is my sincere hope that she gets to experience the fruits of her decisions at first hand someday.
