A man that sews the path of his own destruction.. Defends states incarceration rate.
Sentences a black man to death that didn't pull the trigger in a murder case....Follow me now, all you have to do is look at his history and you"ll see the pattern...when has he ever sentenced a white man to death that didn't pull the trigger...Hmm
Sentences an addict to a hundred plus years for stealing a purse ....I guess a person slowly killing their self everyday was 'nt punishment enough.
I can go on and on but, I'm sure you get the picture.. Can you guess what all these cases have in common? They're all people of color.
His hatred for blacks and Hispanics is unbelievable...He does not believe in the constitution of the united states ... Many people of color are extorted into taking whatever he or the prosecutor recommends ...for fear of being
convicted by preselected all white jury's .
Correct me, if I'm wrong...but, if a judge deny's a motion that supports truth isn't that obstruction of Justice...you damn right it is...It's also hypocrisy..
What kind of a people would vote in a racist to be the judge of others...
When our forefathers wrote the constitution they spoke of a time when government officials would abuse the power that was handed down to them by the voters and that is why rights we're put in place. To protect all people...people of color we're not excluded. If you or any of your love one's have been a victim of injustice please pick up the phone and tell them your side of the truth.

Judge Elliott is NOT a fair judge by any means.
Whoever gives this judge a good rating is either a family member of his or someone that laughs with him in the evil that they share.
Looks at evidence that supports the truth in your defense and throws it right back as if he didn't see it at all . Supports officers that lie under oath.
Helps prosecution build a solid case against you
By stripping you of your civil rights and supporting perjury. Allows prosecution to with hold evidence, delete evidence, destroy evidence,, and whatever else the prosecution needs to do to make you look guilty and supports it even though he knows the evidence doesn't support it. Makes senseless court dates for no reason at all and doesn't like it when you try to talk sense to him. Cases that should be thrown out by law are bounded over for trial. Wastes millions of taxpayers dollars by going to trial on matters to small to even consider at all.
Way too excessive in sentencing violent and non-violent criminals...and turning our prisons into health care facilities and old folk homes.

Judge Ray C. Elliot makes Satin look like a choir boy. He is the very worst of his kind. He uses his power as a judge to abuse and oppress the poor and uneducated.
Any and all motions filed with the court in your defense are simply denied. The percentage of innocent people forced (extortion) into taking a deal to go to prison is 85% while the other15% pay under the table to make things go away.
He is a racist and a very evil person that doesn't uphold or respect the law but seeks justice of his own. A total disgrace to the law profession and humanity. He is the absolute reason why prisons are overcrowded with non-violent criminals...

This judge is all about the power. He treats all defendants as nothing. Telling them right out the gate they are going to prison if they are chewing gum, not dressed to his liking, and not having a lawyer and giving them just just minutes to find one or that's it. It's like he flex his power by using jail time and getting off on it. Everyone does not have the financial capacity to get a lawyer on the spot and further more most of the people are from low economical backgrounds and are trying to do what they can. His response to a woman who had no child care and had to bring her child to court was "not my problem and if you don't get back before I call you then you are going to jail." Time and time again he ignored explanations. Not everyone in that room was a bad person some just pleaded to deals and had no idea what else to do. The state just sees money and a body for prison corporations, and he see to making sure the state gets it.

This judge abuse his power and does whatever he wants. Barely looks at evidence and rules as he like. He was a judge of one of my friends case and my friend was completely innocent but this judge just gave her three dates just to go to court and show up. For absolutely nothing. He didn't even listen to prosecutor and just gave 3 pre trial dates. he is a judge alright but the worst and unfair judge in the whole bench.

Whoever writes that judge Elliot is a fair judge is nothing more than a racist himself. How is it that you can say he's fair AND YOUR WHITE !!! Your not the one being discriminated against and stripped of your civil rights. He knowingly let's prosecution get away with withholding evidence,deleting evidence,fabricating evidence and what ever else they have to do as a team to throw a minority in prison for the rest of there life...I wouldn't be writing this if I didn't know first hand. Judge Elliot thinks he is the LAW....and if your anything other than white your already CONVICTED !!!!!!! HE IS FRUIT FROM THE POISONESS TREE...What is taking you people so long to remove him from the bench? He's violated all 4 cannon rules on a continuing basis and it would take a real man with some ethics to pull his files and hold him accountable for his actions...

After sitting in this judge's courtroom, I have never been so displeased. I sat and watched this judge badger a young man into taking a plea deal. The young man was there for a jury trial, but when he showed up, his attorney and the prosecutors wanted to offer him a plea deal. The young man pleaded to both parties that he was innocent and did not want to take the deal. The judge then made his statement to the man that if he didn't make up his mind he would make it up for him, and they would go to trial and if found guilty, he would give him the maximum sentence. The maximum sentence was 25 years in prison. The man had 45 minutes to make a unclear decision. Frightened, he took the plea bargain. This bothered me, so I looked into this case, and I believe this young man was correct in saying that he was innocent.

The judge's decision to allow Jarrod Truss a two-day leave before serving a twenty-year sentence was simply reckless.

The only reason I voted Elliott a "2" is due to the fact that he runs a tight ship, in terms of keeping things moving and attending to the details.

On the other hand, his bias in favor of the prosecutor and against defendants, their counsel and family/supporters is unbelievable!

I sat through 3 trials that he conducted. In each of them, he denied evidence that might have proved exculpatory for the defendants, quashed testimony favorable to defendants, and did everything short of kissing the prosecutor's hindparts. I saw two (count 'em, TWO!) instances in which he approved a defendant's objections or otherwise ruled in favor of a defendant, but he sat by silently while the prosecutors waltzed around the law.

Judicial bias is unforgivable. It undermines the basis of American jurisprudence, makes a mockery of the law, harms the entire fabric of society -- and sends innocent people to jail and punishes the guilty far in excess of a reasonable or fair sentence.

Oklahoma County would be far better served if the "Honorable" Ray C. Elliott retired or was removed from the bench.

He is a judge but not the judge that oklahoma needs! he seems to be very biased and he does not care about the truth of the case he is more about the prosecution of the case!! facts are overlooked and he seems to think he is the law! we need to disbar him from practicing! he seems to be ok with convicting innocent black men with all white jury's! Yes I will stand on my word. I am a man

Has discretion to suspend life sentence for guy who shoots robber in the act of committing an armed robbery and declines to exercise that discretion sentencing pharmacist to life. sounds real even handed. the wisdom of Solomon.

And yes i am a defense attorney that represents people that commit robberies (allegedly). if you commit a robbery you assume the risk that you will be shot.

Elliott is an even handed judge. People like the previous writer (OK607) clearly don't practice in front of Elliott. They are simply writing bad things because they didn't get their way in his courtroom. Come on guys, be honest. No wonder people don't trust lawyers!

Judge Elliott performs his duties in an excellent fashion. Having been a district attorney, his ability to render correct decisions is amazing. He runs a no-nonsense courtroom, but is compassionate with defendants. He is a great asset to the legal profession and to the judicial community in Oklahoma. We are fortunate to have him as a district judge.
