Disparaging comments made about a parent to her child. Doesn't recuse himself when defendant's council is 2nd largest contributor to his election campaign. "I am not inclined to award child support arrears" he tells the mother. Shows surprise on the bench when the abuser tells the court he hasn't seen his kids in over a year....they have orders of protection against him. His clerk sits in the jury chairs sleeping, making faces in favor of the plaintiff and nods in agreement with the abuser. The judge doesn't even listen to testimony, claiming he can do more than one thing at a time, mid-trial. No regard for the children's best interests, can go on and on.

Not one single thing about Crecca's courtroom is fair. He treats the batterer as a hero and continues to batter the abused spouse. In today's world, when children are told they will be protected from an abuser if they tell someone in authority, Judge Crecca gives the exact opposite message, go for therapy and learn to deal with the abusive parent, otherwise you will grow up to be an alcoholic or drug addict. But, the abusive parent, even after CPS confirms abuse, doesn't have to do a thing, and the custodial parent is threatened with contempt for not dragging the unwilling kids to see their abuser. This is a frightening courtroom presided over by a judge who used to be a law guardian.

Finally- a judge who "gets it"! He's not afraid to take a stand and do what is in a child's best interest. He takes his time and listens to witnesses, as well as the court appointed experts.

A weak judge. Not sure if he ever tried a case before he went on the bench. Weak on the law and sides with the prosecution to protect himself. Not sure who gave him the high rating. Maybe a relative. Another political appointment who lacked the qualifications to be a judge.
