This judge is very strict, I recommend if you get her as a judge to put a motion in to change judges. Judge Rozak use to be the harshest judge, not no more, Policandriotes has taken the title.


Comment #: IL372
This is the most heavy handed judge i have ever seen. She likes to give very long sentences, long as in maximum sentences 70 80 90 years..... Dont go in front of her with any drug deliveries. She has a soft heart for drug addicts so she sees drug dealers as the ultimate evil. Very unbalanced senteneing.
