This judge is clueless with the law!
I also experienced watching him in action and he postpones everything waisting time and money bc he don't know how to make a decision.
I seen him let someone get off of numerous charges just bc there was too much to go through.
He is an embarrassment to the westchester court.
I am an intern and witnessed many court proceedings and Cerratto's court room is a joke. He even answers his phone on the bench!
Who ever votes this guy in has never been in his court room!

Judge Cerrato took my lack of criminal record into consideration and gave me a second chance at life. I am forever indebted.

I agree with the other comments. This judge forgot the facts in my case and we went over the same things and waisted my lawyers time. Then ruled against me and i had to go over his head to have it changed. He has no clue what he is doing.

Does not look at best interest of children. Does not even look at evidence of vilations. Im very dissapointed in this judge and when another judge seen a transcript from his court room, that judge was shocked also. SHAME ON YOU HON. ROBERT CERRATO!

he just destroyed my life. After my twins boys have been with me for over 2 years after being removed from their mother's custody for family offenses against the children. he gives them back. everyone is shocked even the children's mother.Cerrato won the re-election with the support of local 628 firfighter's. guess who is a lt. in the fire dept. the children's grandfather on their mother's side and that point was brought up to court many times during the fact findings. UMMM makes you think. I am apealling his decision with the appelate, however I wish someone would look into this case. My sons spoke to him and expleined to him the danger in going back with their mother. PS they are also 13.
