My daughter was in his treatment court and is alive today because of that Court. I don't know why anyone could say he is corrupt or anything. he gave my daughter the chance to rehab herself. everyone else was ready to give up on her, including me. but he got her and the rest of us in counseling and she went back to school. she married a wonderful guy and they are expecting their first baby.
The dignity, respect and compassion he afforded my family while we were in crisis made it possible for my entire family to come together 1 last time. I am eternally grateful that he allowed my boys to say goodbye and that my son was able to grieve with his whole family.
Can n has gone overboard with sentencings. My stepson was railroaded more than once to where I wouldnt blame any average person giving up figuring ithat no matter what actions are taken to improve ones self can be a waste of time as well making the fall that much harder. There is such thing as wrong place at wrong time but the survelance to prove that fact just miraculously disappeared in time4court. And even better my daughters father who is complete opposite owes over 20,000.00 in support, refused to file taxea for simple fact his return would go to myseld and daughter and in addition to Rxs of narcotics his doctor calls in eaxh month he manages to maintain his expensive drug habit while on assistance and nothing is enforced he just constantly gets put back on st and whatever charges get dropped or changed to misdemeanots. I have seen TOO many GOOD people be thrown to the wolves over the years while the lazy deadbeats continue to live comfortably to continue robbing people and business' so they can inject their dope soak up our tax dollars but my drug free honest educated stepson gets locked away even when I have had police officers tell me how injust the charges were/are. Im disgusted!
