I have witnessed drunk driver and drug users roll through his court...he is as courteous as can be. I'm sorry that you might have gotten the MINIMUM sentence for your reckless behavior.

Having witnessed this persons conduct, I have to say he has fair with his convictions. You are lucky to land in his court, esp if guilty (which these commentators sound like).

I was in Statsinger's Court today and Statsinger committed fraud upon a defendant. The defendant was originally charged with 4 misdemeanors. The defendant asked to be represented by a lawyer even though the defendant is eligible for an HB lawyer. Statsinger refused to allow defendant to have a lawyer and forced him into trial unrepresented. The all of the prosecutor's witnesses lied about what was said and what was heard. The defendant was forced by Statsinger to cross examined the witnesses... on the day of the trial the prosecutor filed a Prosecutor's Information with one of the charge different that the previous charges. The defendant protest by his protest fell on deaf ear. The new charge was Penal Law 240.20 (1) that was never part of the original charge. He asked for discovery on this new charge and Statsinger refused defendant request. is this New Charge on the "Prosecutor's information" handed to the defendant on December 4, 2017 discovery material?

A Horrible Judge Should be sue. Judge Statsinger is extremely Pro-prosecution. Aweful
