Worst Judge ever. I've witnessed this judge deny bail stating that the accused was a flight risk because he was, "married to a Mexican." In his court room, one is denied their constitutional protected RIGHT to reasonable bail simply because of the nationality and/or race of the accused person's spouse-unconscionable and down right illegal. I thought this type of racism left the DOJ in the 1960's-but not with this judge.
