Incompetent DAs and Judges

Delaware AG Beau Biden's Deputy
AG, Daniel Simmons, charged with 4 counts of sexual assault on 16-yo boy.

Perry County Judge Dean L.
Wilson was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the
influence of alcohol or drugs and failing to stop after an accident.
The judge is known for setting
up innovative courts for drunk drivers.

When Linda Wolicki-Gables and her husband appealed a lawsuit all the way to
the second-highest court in the nation against Johnson & Johnson over a
malfunctioning medication pump that had been implanted in her body, the
couple had no idea that one of the judges who decided their case had a
financial stake in the giant multinational company.
Eleventh U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals Judge James Hill owned as much as $100,000 in Johnson & Johnson
stock when he and two other judges ruled
against the Gables’ appeal in the precedent-setting case.
The Center also found that
Hill ruled on three other appeals involving companies in which he owned
stock, violating clear rules governing the federal courts. In all four
instances, the court rulings favored his financial interest. In a statement
released by the court
The Center found 26 examples
since just 2010 where federal appellate judges ruled on cases in which
they had a financial interest. IOW they were crooks. More than 110 of
the appellate judges blacked out information on their annual reports --
there's only 255 of them. So, essentially we are saying half of the
federal appellate judges have something to hide.

MT Judge G. Todd Baugh didn't
get away with it: suspended without pay, viral 31 day sentence of teacher for raping 14 yo
Cherice Moralze was a
14-yo student of pervert Stacy Dean Rambold when he raped her.
Before he could be brought to trial she committed suicide.
Kidde raper Rambold, headed to prison.
Rambold admitted to rape in
exchange for no jail time -- ain't that sweet? I mean a judge would have
to be on the take to buy into that idea -- but that's what happened.
When Rambold screwed his probation conditions by being kicked out of a
treatment program, he came up for sentencing again. That's when this
cluster fuck of a judge G. Todd Baugh gave him a 31 day sentence and
blamed the girl because, according to Baugh, the 14-yo was "older than
her chronological age."
These sorts of sexist outcomes
used to be commonplace in backwater holes like Yellowstone County, MT,
but times they are a'changin'. The blogosphere let loose with a flood of
shit on this wacko judge and he was dragged before the state supreme
court. Essentially, his penalty was suspended and lost a month's pay
before he retired.
As for the pervert, the MT
Supreme Court found that no judge could suspend all but 31 days of a statutory
rape sentence. In April.2014 the case was sent to another judge for
re-sentencing according to the law. Pending. Reuters

The best way to deal with rape
and domestic abuse victims who have the audacity to accuse their
attackers: lock them up. No . . . the victim, not the
attacker. Let him go free on bail.
In Cowlitz County, WA a
43-yo woman who was kidnapped and raped was arrested without being charged
with any crime, ostensibly to make sure she showed up at trial. It's a
little number called a "witness warrant." That's right the DA
can lock up a victim of a crime because they are the victim and therefore they
have to appear at trial. Jezebel
And it's not a peculiarity of
backwater, turkey-turd places like Cowlitz County, WA. A DA/judge
tag-team in Scranton, PA just pulled the same shit with a female
assault victim, Faith Bronson. She was locked up in Lackawanna
County Prison for no other reason than the DA said she might not show at the
trial of her attacker. Judge Michael Barrasse locked Bronson up
until she can post $25,000 bail. Source
Now be sure you get this right
-- it is not the person who committed the crime we're talkin' about.
It's the woman who got the piss pounded out of her. That's her penalty
for bringing charges against the attacker -- lock-up until trial. BTW,
the DA, Gene Riccardo,
and the judge, Michael Barrasse are both . . . you guessed it! . . .
Gene Ricardo just waiting for the next woman with balls enough to accuse a
My understanding is that after
the Internet went bonkers over this story, the Riccardo and Marrasse backed
off and agreed that Ms. Bronson could remain on house arrest.
This sort of media attention is
sure to lighten the load on both the DA and the judge since no woman in her
right mind will now bring charges for rape or assault in Scranton. On
the one hand the attacker will beat the shit out of them and on the other the
judges and DA's will lock them up.
God bless America.
Black dude cold-cocks man with
Asperger's, kills him with one blow, gets 4 years. Will be out in 2.
The US is not the only place
that has a problem with dumb-ass judges. Meet controversial Judge
Keith Cutler of Salisbury Crown Court, UK, who is reported to have said as
he sentenced Lewis Gill to just 4 years for killing the absolutely
defenseless Andrew Young: "What I have to look at is what was in
your mind at the time you threw that punch."
Keith Cutler in goofy wig.
How can any judge be so freaking
stupid as to think he has the ability or the duty to read the mind of a
killer? How about the harmless victim -- who's reading his mind as he
stood there looking over his right shoulder as Gill delivered the fatal
Simon Scott said of [Mr. Young]: ‘Andrew was always friendly and polite
and often struck up conversations with strangers. He was gentle and
wouldn’t hurt a fly.’ DailyMail
And against the background of a
4 yr sentence for killing an innocent, defenseless man, there is the other
over-the-edge UK case in which UK Judge Stephen Males sentenced Jamie
Windle, 24, to freaking NINE years for giving a man a broken jaw for
having an affair with his mother, thus ruining his family. In Saudi
Arabia adultery will get you not just a broken jaw, but a stoning. Daily
And while we're on the subject
of UK judges' unbelievably gormless decisions . . . meet Judge Francis Sheridan
wigged wonder released an accused rapist from Zimbabwe who admitted pouring boiling water
over his victim's head and intentionally infecting additional women with
HIV. What could possibly go wrong?
Francis Sheridan . . . when will someone start
locking up the judges?
it, even though the judge was too thick to: Brian Shayanowako, 54, failed to turn up for his rape trial after
Sheridan allowed him to walk out of Aylesbury Crown Court on August 19. -- Leon
. . . we have dum bass Judge Leigh Ann Darby, of Sentatobia MS who
wouldn't know due process from a swamp-turtle's ass.
three kids -- 2 girls and a boy, all in the 10th grade -- cut through a
neighbor's yard, the neighbor called the cops. No news
there. There are these kinds of prick homeowners in every
the news is this mud for brains judge who sent the kids to the Alcorn County
detention center where they were grossly humiliated by being stripped
naked and forced to squat and cough. Then drug tested. Then
held for three days. For cutting across a yard. 15 and 16 yo
kids had no police records, no drugs, and there was no probable cause to
suspect they were doing anything but schleping between two houses in the
straightest line home, as kids do in every community. AP
Oh, yeah . . . they're black, and this is still Mississippi.
add insult to injury, the guy in charge of the detention center, Alcorn
County Sheriff Charles Rinehart virtually called the kids liars -- "We
don't do that" Rinehart said of the squat and cough procedure after
the kids' story went viral. Well, Rinehart better hope someone
"forgot" to turn on the CCTV because his ass in sure to be in a
law suit soon. Source

saying Darby can't be re-elected, she was never elected in the first
place. Darby was hired by some other judge -- a guy named Percy
Lynchard. You know how these things go in the deep south.
expected, Lynchard originally defended Darby's decision. His point was, like, well, how could Darby know that Friday starts a
weekend, and that it was a holiday weekend, and that the kids would be
locked up until Tuesday? KLTV
guy Lynchard is the one the MS Supreme Court needs to have a look at,
IMO. But now that the MS Supreme Court has shit-canned Darby and the
whole freaking world is looking down on these judges in Drake County, MS,
ole' Percy is backing off.
May2014 MSSCt decision removing Darby from office. Ironically (or
not), she was replaced
by a black man.
