JUDGE JEFF MICHAEL WACHS IS A THUG WHO PROMOTES CHILD ABUSE, USING CHILDREN AS WEAPONS, FRAUD, PERJURY, MALICIOUS PROSECUTION, FALSE ALLEGATIONS, TAMPERING WITH EVIDENCE, AND MORE.

WACHS AWARDED SOLE CUSTODY TO A WOMAN WHO FORGED A LETTER FROM MY MOTHER TO THE STATE’S ATTORNEY'S OFFICE SAYING I'M HOMICIDAL. WHEN MY MOTHER TESTIFIED OTHERWISE, WACHS SAID HE FINDS IT "CONCERNING" THAT MY MOTHER AND I WORKING TOGETHER. IT'S IN TRANSCRIPTS. THE LETTER HAS NEVER BEEN PRODUCED FOR INSPECTION.

It's time to stop pretending that AA Co police don't lie.

It's time to stop pretending that false allegations aren't commonly used as weapons in custody disputes, and that Anne Arundel County CPS is competent enough to spot false allegations, or courageous enough to speak up when they do see false allegations.

It's time to stop pretending that MD judges are devoid of corruption.

It's time to stop pretending that MD judges are considerate of a parent's pleas for help during custody battles. It's time we stop letting them get away with that "best interest of the child" line, as they abuse their authority to create silent victims of parents and defenseless children.

When I pointed out the countless blunders in my case by MD state and Anne Arundel County workers, Wachs mocked me by putting the word, "conspiracy," in my mouth. I don't ascribe to conspiracy what I've seen demonstrated by laziness, cowardice, ineptitude, and lies.

Whose logic do these headlines support?

Had him for domestic P.O. He seemed to want to find a way to enter it no matter the lack of evidence. Not bright. Not attentive. Not a good judge at all!! Avoid him at all costs in domestic issues as he is inapt. Appeal!!!

I went before this judge on a civil matter. He did not follow the law at all. My lawyer was appalled at the outcome, and was speechless at this judge's inability.
