Judge Jan Krocker is clearly mentally ill. Her behavior and values demonstrated from her behavior are significantly different from the values of the Republican Party. The Republican platform core values include (1) right to life, (2) personal responsibility and (3) Christian values. Judge Krocker runs a death camp, while claiming to support a a right to life. She fail to understand how her adverse actions impact the lives of the poor. The intentional denial-delay-and ignoring of the guaranteed protections and reasonable accountability is discriminatory and does not support the right to life which extends beyond gestation. Judge Krocker is overtly biased and lacks the ability to demonstrate impartiality during trial. Her tone and tenor in speaking with individuals with mental illnesses defies every moral standard known to mankind. Her behavior can only be described as mean and evil. The measure of one's love for our mutual Creator is measured by the love that you show the least among us . One prosecutor in the courtroom is enough, and the actions that she engages destroys the sanctity of the court. Someone should tell her that "scared straight" was an ineffective strategy that demonstrated no significant empirical evidence in decreasing recidivism.
She talks about helping family's and the mentally ill but will not give my wife credit for time served.I was told by our Lawyer that she is keeping my wife in jail longer because she thinks I just want her home to help with our kids.Yes my wife is bi-polar,yes we have been married 17 years,yes I want her home,its been 6 months.I have help from family and friends with our children.She was sentence 180 days,she will get out Dec.8th......243 days.I read she was voted worst Judge in Texas in 2006,I see why.It has nothing to do about our kids,its about being fair and doing what you say.You say your about helping the mentally ill,I dont see it.
I di not even want to give one star. This judge ruined my life when I was only a teenager. My conviction should have been a gross misdemeanor because it was my first time doing any such thing (forging 2 checks totaling less than $200 for a pair of shoes and a few clothing items for friends), but she slapped me with two class c felonies. I was in college. Luckily, it did not affect my career path (journalism), however, 23 years later, I am seeking a professional license and trying to get into grad school and it may affect me. She has no compassion whatsoever. No discretion whatsoever. She just throws lives away. I did 4 years and 2 months of my 5 year probation stint for the crime and because I did not want to sit out restitution owed at that point, she jailed me for the remainder of my time. However, it was not explained to me that it would be my only option. I was screwed by the public defenders (I could not afford an attorney). I am looking to reopen the case and possibly getting the class of conviction reduced or applying for a pardon. Not to mention, her court with exception to the prosecutor (he was a God send) was disrespectful, rude, intimidating and made me cry because they were insulting me and lying on me in front of the spectators in the court. I was just a kid. I am not surprised to see that decades later, via a google search, that this woman is one of the worst judges in TX and very disliked. She should be removed from her seat. I am sure she is psychotic and gets off on ruining people lives who are no real threat to society.
I want to let Judge Jan Krocker know that I appreciate her for helping me when I was going through tough times in my life. I thank God for New Choices that I was introduced to and now I help people that been through what I been through. So I just like to thank Judge Jan Krocker again.
Judge Krocker also helped me. With 2 felony drug charges, she sent me to the county program New Choices. It changed my life. I am very grateful that she was in favor of reform instead of pure punishment. Because of Judge Krocker I have 9 years of sobriety and am on my was to becoming a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor to help others like me. Thank you, Judge Krocker.
