Forger Gets the Small Town Blues, and More on the Judge Who Was Mean

Posted by Alan Childress

You know your city is really a small town (we're looking at you, Wichita) when the check-forger gets caught because she presented the check to that same Francisca Romero woman whose name was on the check.  So says this blog of legal and judicial news from Kansas. 

The What the Judge Ate for Breakfast blog also follows up, here, on Mike's previous story about the judge who got censured for meanness toward jurors, including links to other posts on the judge and news of her re-election prospects.  See especially the pointed comments and details at Anne Reed's Deliberations blog, who views the Kansas court's response as inadequate.  What about the actual effect on the criminal defendant tried to a jury "harangued into service"?  Maybe the judge's announcement that she was not "some angry shrew up here" did not remove the taint, Reed opines.
