This woman should not be judging anyone. I watched her let hard druggies go then she put my uncle away and his charge wasn't serious. She believed anything the DA said. They call her 'go home Joan' but it's more like 'bad news brown'.
Joan A Brown is a terrible judge. Seemingly sympathetic to all criminals. She lets criminals get off lightly. A friend of mind was attacked and she let the attacker walk with the slap of the wrist even though he was obviously guilty. I feel sorry for anyone who has her as a judge.
