Recently spent a day in Mark Kent Ellis' courtroom and seeing the word honorable in front of his name is equivalent to adding chateau to the phrase outhouse. I watched him tell the attorneys "people do not actually change, they've only changed because they are currently in jail." Shortly following that statement he sentenced an individual that had already served 82 days to three years in TDC and told him "TDC has voluntary programs to help you rehabilitate and you should use them while there." What a two face liar, He also cracked a joke to members of his staff within thirty seconds of this sentencing. He has the ability to make his decision before the lawyer starts speaking (what a guy). This man has a hardened heart, having him set on the bench is equivalent to having a heart surgeon with Parkinson's disease. I will definitely be more actively involved in the 2016 elections than previous ones.
This guy has zero respect for the justice system. He knows his verdict prior to any defense. He's a misogynist, racist, power hunger man with no integrity. He mocks defendants and their attorneys in court in front of staff and others, exhibiting no humanity, respect for the courtroom, or concern for innocence. Everybody is guilty and must be dealt with in the strictest of sentences that he can legally prescribe. He is part of the problem and has to go!!!
i got to watch "kunt" go on a long speech about how if he was'nt personal friends with a defendants dad he would have to hold him accountable for his actions. right before he let him go. this piece of shit should not be a judge.
I understand the need for prosecution of criminal cases, I understand the frustration many people feel about what seems to be the willy-nilly release of violent offenders, but this judge has gone to the other extreme. Sentencing is much harsher than the crime warrants. A 20thousand dollar bond for a 1000 dollar debt is ridiculous. VOTE NO to this judge at the next election!
ATTENTION: You can protect the JUSTICE System and oppose obstructions of JUSTICE. Demand JURY TRIALS be provided, TO SWEEP THESE ACTS OF WRONGDOING WITH THE JUSTICE OF THE GRAND JURY. With enough persistence you should be able to obtain a mailing address, email address, and/or fax number for a sitting grand jury in your area. Send your evidence presentment in all possible means, ASAP. Any person that tells you that you do not have the right to present knowledge of WRONGDOING to your district grand jury is acting in contradiction to law, and aiding and abetting, adhering, giving comfort to enemies (and enemy forces, organized crime) of this country and United States. If you have knowledge of what you believe to be wrongdoing/crimes, immediately report that evidence to your nearest grand juries ASAP, and law enforcement, local, state, and federal (district attorney, police, sheriff, state attorney General, FBI, securities and exchange commission, US Marshall service, etc. etc.)
We the people have the right to stand up to injustice and abuse of power. All it takes is contacting the correct people and never giving up period this judge will answer for all the pain and suffering he has caused never forget that voters.
Regarding a DWI manslaughter case involving probation violation: He doesn't seem to have any interest in individuals. He knows what he will do before hearing anything about the cause of the probation violation after 6.5 of 10 years with a perfect probation record. There are so may options for him that would help the probationer, but he wants to send her to prison for 10 years.
Doesn't care about peoples lives sat in the court house for years and watched him hand out ridiculous sentences including one from a 17 year old who has never been arrested refused to look at letters from the victim and witnesses stating he did not do the crime his 30 year old friend attacked a old woman and the 17year old stayed and helped her until witnesses came out he left before the cops came he held off his court dates for years after then sentence him to 10 years agg assault and didn't give him time served for the 2 1\2 years he did he did not let him speak once to plead his case and ignored his lawyer evil man he has lots of cases where he sentences young black and hispanic men even if they are innocent even the black man who was sentenced for murder but was incarcerated at the time and didnt release him until the newspapers caught wind of it.
I was on a jury with Judge Ellis - he was very professional, had patience, explained the law, took any jury member questions and let the attorneys handle most of the jury select process. Ultimately, enough jury members were not available, so the panel was dismissed. I thought that he did an outstanding job.
