Judge Polandna I thought was a good judge until he let a man with 3 DUI's in 9 months out on bond to have it revoked after violating his bond for another DUI to be release again on bound for $1,200. I hope that no one gets killed by Robert Beyer out in St. Cloud!!! Thanks for nothing Judge Polanda!!

This Judge has turned into a well seasoned judge. He is one of the best judges in the circuit. My only complaint is the huge number of cases Osceola dockets have which sometimes creates delays.

This judge truly is the worst in Osceola County. He should be avoided. He does whatever he please in the court room.

Judge Polodna is a good judge. He has a tendency to try to get people to plea early without regard to the fact they may not be guilty of the crime, but doesn't punish one for going to trial. He is generally even-handed.

Doesn't like objections to his rulings or disagreements with his decisions.
