What others have said about Hon. Kenneth C. Holder

Comment #: NY8695
Judge Kenneth Holder is very unfair and biased towards the defense. He shows no mercy whatsoever and like its been said below it's like having two district attorney's in the room.
He needs to be more fair and treat the defense and D.A. equally, whether he's in the favor of the defense or not shouldn't matter. A judge's role is to give the defendant a fair trial which is definitely not the case if you're given a judge like him.

Judge kenneth holder is the worse judge a family member of mine was sentenced by him and he definitely put his personal feelings into it in which no judge is suppose to do he is very bias he is the type of judge if you're on trial for dropping paper on the ground he is sentencing you to life in jail

This guy is a disaster. He has yet to leave the District Attorney's office. He is uneducatable, he doesn't want to hear from attorneys/

Off the bench he is affable, on the bench he is insulting and worse.

He is so pro-prosecution it is like having two of them in the room.

Do not let the smile and the "warmth" fool you, he hates the defense bar and is settling scores from when he was an ADA. Stay away from him.
