Maybe the most arrogant judge I have seen in 32 years of practice. Only concern is pleas--never considers the possibility that DA's facts could not be 100% accurate. Cannot imagine he tried many (any?) cases as a defense attorney. Know-it-all Dweeb.

Very insecure man who should never handle any serious case. Local 18b type lawyer who never had any success as a practitioner and now the undeserved judgeship has gone to his head. Very poor judicial demeanor. The Bar should be looking to remove him from the bench. Loves to grandstand for the police.

Judge Warhit is an entirely pro-prosecution judge. In prior lives he was a prosecutor and a failed 18-b lawyer. In truth, he never left the prosecutor's office. He has no sense of fairness or impartialilty, and refuses to decide against the police in any matter. He has a nasty and arrogant personality, and bullies all litigants who dare to disagree with him.
