Marcus Aurelius: How else could he be a criminal judge?
cgraves67: No man is above da law!!11!1
ZAZ: Isn't it game over once you plead guilty?He's saying the judge was mean to him so his guilty plea doesn't count. He spent years dragging out the case doing all the tricks "beat your ticket" guides say to do. The traffic court judge finally said the fine would be over $400 instead of the usual $200. The speeder judge said he felt pressured into paying and now he's going to take his case all the way to the supreme court (which he sits on, but he'll have to recuse himself). So basically he's like any other whiny defendant. That's not to say he was doing anything wrong when he drove 79 mph on a highway, but he played the game and he lost. In the process he annoyed the judge.He's lucky. In Georgia annoying a traffic court judge can land you in jail. In Texas it earns you a bigger fine.
ZAZ: Couldn't you, I don't know, arrest him once he shows up at work?At work like in the garage, but not in his office. There's an ill-defined principle that one should not disrupt judicial proceedings by executing warrants. Not worth testing over an unpaid ticket.
