    • These judges in this county must NOT be re-elected in November.

      • The state may agree with you, two of our local judges have been reprimanded. Why they get to keep practicing is beyond me.

        Highly recommend everyone spend a few hours at the courthouse, check out some arraignments and some actual cases. Its good to see how it all works, & the crazy power judges have to decide what can be said/used for evidence in cases!!

        Often humorous displays of human nature there, but also have seen enough to say there are some super questionable & very personally biased judges in our courts.

      • Looks like he constantly wore a beanie lol or at least fell asleep in his car wearing beanie with the sun beating on him all day.

  • sharpen your pencil

    Damn junkies, heroin is an epidemic. However, let’s spend hundreds of thousands of dollars eradicating a plant….. this clown wasn’t even out for the remainder of the week he was already busted in…. these parasites that are dealers of this shit should be remanded until trial ends..

    • Its so frustrating seeing scary jerks get out so quick especially when there are soooooo many folks in jail/prison for conspiracy, serving 15-20 year sentences for (example) giving their friend a phone message from an undercover cop to meet at a certain time and place, unbeknownst to said person the meeting was a ‘drug’ deal. For pot no less, in this true example.

  • Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me! Fool me thrice, and double tap!

  • Yes: which 2 judges were reprimanded and by whom ?

  • With all the nonsense happening with the judges and the whole system is so messed up no wonder he’s out.im sure he found his guy already and is passed out somewhere else

  • Was anybody hurt? If not, the judge was right in protecting his individual right. The way things are going, it’s just a matter of time before shampoo is outlawed.
    The wars against poverty, drugs, terrorism, global warming, smoking, are only rights strippers in disguise.
    If he hurt somebody, lock him up & throw away the key!

  • that sounds like a lot of heroin to me, but I dont know.

  • I guess he has been denied bail

  • Damn Gay!
