What others have said about Hon. Thomas Borresen



Comment #: ID30
Judge Borresen is a joke. I had been charged with something I was innocent of and was thrown into Jerome County jail on a Friday afternoon. This judge does not address any defendant on the weekends and makes you wait until 3 DAYS LATER when he gets around to it to let you post bail. Also, a person cannot place an outgoing call on the weekend because there is no staff on duty to deposit $ into a phone acct for you to call to get help to get out of there. THIS IS NOTHING SHORT OF A RACKET TO ABUSE PEOPLE WITH POSITIONS OF POWER. When I showed up for arraignment in court on this charge, I showed up on time. Judge Borresen, on the other hand, showed up 20 MINUTES LATE to court with no explanation or apology. If defendants did this and were late, we would have a warrant issued for our arrest for not following the law. I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A CORRUPT JUSTICE SYSTEM AS IN JEROME COUNTY, IDAHO UNDER JUDGE BORRESEN.
