Comment #: MD6438
I can not believe only one person has complained about Judge Kratovil. He would rather put someone in jail then recovery.He would take someone out of recovery and put them in jail. Our jails are filled with people that do not need to be there because of him. Governor Hogan needs to look at Judge Kratovil. Everyone knows in Queen Anne's just afraid to speak up.

He obviously hates his job and is still very bitter from losing his run for office in Anne Arundel County. Not fair, extremely harsh with sentencing and blatantly lies. Total abuse of power. "won't retire without 1 million years of jail time"-Hon. Judge Kratovil
I hope he calms down and stops trying to over compensate for his short cummings. (or lack there of)
