Acts hastily with rulings made on an emotional basis rather than reference to law and fact. Rarely consults case decisions or statute. Is often critical of counsel on the record. Clearly favors the prosecution and is heavy handed on jail time in dispositions. Stresses when confronted with time constraints.
I was so impressed with her knowledge and demeanor...she looks so young and attractive and is so professional. The insight and information she gave the jury was really helpful. If I ever had to go before a judge I would hope it would be her!
Amazing judge. She was so informed and able to state case law without having to take a recess and research the information. She took control of the court room when the dialogue was heated between the attorneys. To be so young and good looking with wisdom and demeanor... Very impressive!
Due to her easily excitable and melodramatic character the entire PD office avoided this judge and would not appear in her court.
As a walk in, I was then remanded into custody WITHOUT any representation. Sad when I saw she is still a Judge.
This Judge saved my grandsons life! He was hanging with a rough crowd of kids and yes he did break the law. But this Judge gave him an opportunity to go out of state to complete high school and get a new lease on life. He got good grades and graduated and has hope for his future. This never would of happened if it hadn't been for Judge Yriarte
