Just came back from his sentencing my client. There were no surprises. He called us up to the bench in advance to confirm the terms of the agreed-upon sentence. After a favorable PSR, he imposed the agreed-upon sentence. He's decent, polite, smart and evenhanded.

Seems to run a tight ship. I just had a pretrial appearance before him and held a tight rein on a lawyer who was giving him double-talk.

I had an arraignment before him in a multiple defendant Medicaid Fraud case and he acted professionally in seeing that each defendant was speedily arraigned and released that day. Although the A.G.'s office did a less than mediocre bail presentation for a few defendants considered flight risks, the judge considered the defense (also less than mediocre) arguments and released the defendant for 24 hours to post bail the next day. If I had known he was amendable to giving defendants time to post, I wouldn't have had the clients run around getting funds at the last minute. I hope my pretrial and trial experience before this judge is as pleasurable as the arraignment. So, for the next attorney at an arraignment on disputed bail, I'd take a shot before Judge Ingram at arguing for a reduced bail, rather than accept the number the People propose.
