Today is the 1 year a anniversary of me taking the bench.

It has been an incredible first year serving the people of Harris County, Texas. I have enjoyed your visits to the 180th Criminal Court. I have enjoyed working in the community and discussing criminal justice with you all.

As we move into 2020, I look forward to continuing to be innovative in my approach to managing my court. I will continue to preside with compassion and respect, because that's what we all deserve.

In order to make up for the inability to host court in the Criminal Justice Center, which is equipped to hold defendants who are being held in jail, I visit the Joint Processing Center every other week.

This allows me to release those who dont make the "jail docket" during "bond week".

Rather than have men and women who are presumed innocent until proven guilty waste away in jail, I take affirmative steps to have them released pending the disposition of their case.

There are exceptions. However, it is imperative that those exceptions match what has been outlined by the 8th Amendment of the United States Consititution; Article 1, Section 11 of the Texas Consititution; and the Code of Criminal Procedure 17.15.

We should not uphold the law through lawlessness, fear-mongering, or heightened emotions. Our jails are disproportionally black, brown and poor. The disparate impact upon these communities within the criminal justice system is an injustice.

How can you label someone a criminal, yet at the same time note that you have no evidence to prove their criminality?

This week I was thrilled to have the Harris County District Clerk's IT personnel enable digital signature for documents I constantly have to sign along with two other parties. Now, we will save an an incredible amount of time that can be used on other matters.

This morning I was able to attend a logistics class for probationers. Once people have "paid their debt" to society, it's important to explore and implement restorative measures to get then back on track.

Congratulations to one our newest Texas attorneys!

It was a privilege to swear in Mr. Millington this week. He is an ambitious person who I think will do great things.

My advice for him was to stay around positive, motivated people. And to consistently read and study his craft.

Often times just because you can do something does not mean you should do something. Wealth based detention is in our jails is wrong. Some have even described it as slavery by another name. Fear mongers would have you hold everyone in jail rather than just the outliers.

We must be compassionate in our approach to criminal justice because the system has ruined the lives of too many lives.

10/25/2019

Congratulations to everyone who passed the Texas Bar!

If you have decided to jump right into things, please feel free to stop by my court if you need to talk.

In November of 2011, I struck out on my own and never looked back. No matter what you do, find good mentors and always be willing to listen.

I'm very happy for you all and wish you much success.

You let this idiot loose? You obviously dont care about the safety of the citizens of Harris County.
Good afternoon, I’m writing this in regards to what is going on with the law enforcement. Why did you let that animal back on the street?? We have a very dangerous future if nothing is done. We need stricter laws, AND WE NEED TO STOP GIVING THOSE ANIMALS A SECOND CHANCE. DO YOU NOT SEE OR HEAR WHATS GOING ON. AND THE LAW CANT EVEN DO THEIR JOBS BECAUSE THE FEAR OF DOING SOMETHING WRONG IN THOSE IDIOTIC PEOPLES EYES YOU BREAK THE LAW YOU RESIST AREST YOUR NOT COMPLYING THEN THE LAW SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WHATEVER IT IS THEY HAVE TO DO TO ARREST THE LAW BREAKERS WHY SHOULD THE LAW PUT THEMSELVES IN HARMS WAY WITH THOSE IDIOTS. YOU BREAK THE LAW THEN YOU DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES. YOU RESIST THEN AT THAT MOMENT THE COPS SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WHATEVER IT IS TO ARREST THEM!!! I’m so sick and tired of being sick and tired of the racist comments. We all have choices in life and if you choose to break the law then your rights should be taken. THEY SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO DO WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
Liberalism is a mental disorder
A disgrace
I’m wondering what you define as justice ?
Are you a damn moron or just a cop hater?
So is it true that if it turns out that if someone is ma********ng in a Walmart parking lot, and then punch 2 cops in the face and knock one temporarily unconscious... you will let them out 48 hours later on a PR bond? Great job!
Is the court open to visitors tomorrow?
This man is the perfect example of PURE Stupidity!!!....
you should be embarrassed for yourself, i can understand releasing some low level crime accused inmates, but to let a possibly high crime as in murder, wth...that is def a slap in the face to the judicial system and mainly the victim's family. if this was your blood or relative, you would be furious. rethink your ignorance.
You should be ashamed.
