29 months for a female predator who drugave drugs and alcohol to a 13 year old boy. We do not need judges on the bench with hidden agendas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found Judge Ball to be a terrific judge before whom to try a case. She is fair, respectful, and retains great control over the trial.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Very defense oriented. Not very good to have on a trial (and doesn't do many jury trials) but definitely the one you want if you have a difficult plea. A bit tough on rape sentencing.
