Very pro-prosecution choice, former long time state's attorney. Does not even want to listen to pro se defendants. Should be removed from the bench.

Mean and incredibly pro-prosecution. She is a ridiculous choice out of the state's attorney's office and should never have been put on the bench. If you get this judge, pray a jury trial or ask for a continuance, just to get away from her. What a shame.

Judge Reilly is a fantastic judge. No B.S. She sees the real issues without being distracted by defense or prosecution tactics. We need more like her.

Very fair. Even tempered. Well reasoned, Good on the law. Will believe citizens over police if they are more believable. I rarely disagree with her final decisions. Tough sentences in violent crimes with injuries, but not i appropriately so.

Incredible anti-male bias and pro-prosecution bias. Another political choice out of the state's attorneys' office. Blatantly unfair to defendants.
