Judge Picheca is a lazy and most times doses off during trials. Goes with an influence of his attorney friends and disregards facts.

Together we can stop Judiciary abuse!


Comment #: NJ3806
He was none compasionate , uncooperative , screaming at the top of his lungs , and was completely none complyent to the mental needs of a disabled mentality person needing more understanding to relate and cohere.
His way is the deseption of a scammers like quality's
His public defender forces you into a plea deal.
The prosecutor never clearifys options .
They forced people in to prisonment wrongful and unjustified.


Comment #: NJ3073
Through well written decisions, leaving little or no room for miss-interpretation of the order.

Great attention to detail, decision contained facts that were contained within the exhibits that were not written into the certification(s), proof that all exhibits were reviewed.

He did not grant everything requested, but anything he denied was denied with specific reasons, supported by law, case law, or precedence.

I was impressed with this Judge. He takes his job serious in an effort to do justice. I appeared before him in Juvenile Court.
