|This weird Texas judge tried to overrule a jury by attempting|
to get them to declare a defendent innocent because God
supposedly told this judge she was innocent. Riiiiight.
It's a little hypocritical for them to embrace a guy who among so many other things, seems to have cheated on his wife with a porn star.
But, the more corrupt evangelicals (not most of them, but the ones in power, it seems) love Trump because it looks like he'll let them do anything they want. Or so they think.
The latest person who thinks he can get away with a lot is a Texas judge who recently try to get a jury to find woman accused of trafficking a teen girl for sex innocent. The reason? God told him to intervene, said the judge.
Judge Jack Robison told the jury, "When god tells me I gotta do something, I gotta do it,"
Or not. The jury ignored the judge, thank goodness and went with the evidence instead. The panel convicted Gloria Romero-Perez and she was later sentenced to 25 years in prison. The judge was also forced to recuse himself from the trial's penalty phase.
The jury foreman, Mark House said he and others on the jury either filed or intend to file a complaint with the Texas Judicial Conduct Commission.
Mark A. House, jury foreman in the weeklong trial of Gloria Romero Perez that concluded Jan. 12 has already filed a complaint. His filing states: "Judge Robison came into the jury room during deliberations two times and informed the jurors that he did not believe the defedent was guilty or should spend 25 years in prison."
Talk about trying to tamper with a jury!
Let me put it as bluntly as possible. When somebody informs you that God told you to do something, that person knows deep inside they shouldn't do it. They try to throw you with the "authority" of God.
The only people who buy that argument are the people saying God made them do it. Right, Roy Moore?
Let's hope sane minds prevail in Texas and they get rid of Judge Robeson once and for all.
