The goofy world of judges and ‘hotties’

Sometimes the truth is indeed stranger than fiction; and sometimes you don’t really know what’s truth and what’s fiction.

Recently, District Attorney Scott Ballard, along with Chief Public Defender Joe Saia, released the results of their so-called, “investigation” into the Judge English affair.

I have to give the DA’s office credit. It took them just a few short days to determine that English’s affair with public defender Kim Cornwell didn’t affect any of his rulings in well over 200 cases, many of which had been reassigned to English’s courtroom. Read More»
