All ratings have been erased except this one....pretty scary. Again, this Judge is letting a rapist possibly go free. Refused to sign off on a computer that was seized w a search warrant. He wont let detective access any info from computer that may help a woman that was brutally beaten and raped by the owner of computer. The perp is also on probation. He is a white male, his lawyer is an ex public defender from Montgomery County Md. The system is broken.

One of the hardest workers on the bench, he is knowledgeable and cares very much about what he is doing. He sometimes gets impatient with lawyers who he feels are wasting his time.
