This man should not be a judge.He is extremely biased and does not know the correct application of the law. He denied 2 children who suffered from mental health issues medical help. The first eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia and the second ADHD and Autism.

He was extremely unprofessional today with his unprofessional bully type of justice and his disprespect in keeping all of us quiet without letting us raise our hands to help Mrs. Hart who will be turning 94 this November. I will personally send a more thourough detail complaint to the Wisconsin Bar Association.

I will summarize this with a statement from Hon. Judge Bohren himself. Regarding testimony in a paternity case. The Bio-Father admitted to raping the mother.
Father: "I was told to stop."

At the end of the trial:
Bohren: "The Rape was an afterthought."
Nothing more needs to be said on him.

If he does not like you or your client, you will not get a fair shake in his courtroom. He considrs the resources of the court more important than the resources of the citizens who pay taxes so that his bkack robed back side can sit on the bench.

terrible judge
have read about this judge and he seems to have no compassion even when the prosecution is asking for leniency.
He also seems to make legal errors in his application of the law.
