Judge With a Grudge

Bail-fail judge with a grudge
The New York Post by Amber Sutherland, Kirstan Conley and Bob Fredericks  -  August 31, 2011

The rookie Bronx judge who has been allowing violent criminals to walk free without bail despises her job -- and hopes she'll force a transfer from the rough-and-tumble Criminal Court to the cushier civil division, a well-placed source told The Post.  Carol "Set 'Em Free" Feinman, 57, was elected as a $125,000-a-year civil court judge, but was bumped to criminal court immediately after her Jan. 3 start date because of a heavy backlog of cases.  "She's unhappy on the criminal side," the law-enforcement source said. "Most of the judges who get transferred step up to the plate."  Feinman had no criminal-law experience before she was elected, having served 25 years as an administrative-law judge, earning nearly $87,000 in that job in 2009.  Cops and Bronx prosecutors are outraged that Feinman has free rein to let dangerous perps walk free, beholden to no one except voters in 2020.  A source said no complaints have been filed against the judge and it is unclear if any action could be taken against her if they had.  Court spokesman David Bookstaver declined to comment on Feinman's status -- but suggested a transfer is possible.  "The decisions about judicial assignments for next year will be addressed in the fall," he said.  Feinman -- a longtime West Village activist and former chair of Community Board 2 -- yesterday snapped at a Post photographer outside her apartment.  'Get the f - - k away from me or I'm calling the police!" she snarled.  Among her rogues' gallery of freed thugs is Ramon Barroso, 45, an ex-con with four burglary convictions since 1985.  The career thug was charged with breaking into the Miracle Provider City Church in The Bronx on June 29, after cops matched his DNA to a sample from a safe.  Barroso told cops he was an expert safe cracker who would have worn gloves.  At his arraignment, prosecutors asked for $50,000 bail -- but Feinman incredibly declined.  "I am going to release the defendant," she said. "I think his past history would indicate that if he were to commit a burglary, he would be smart enough to wear gloves."  Pastor Kenneth Hunter was dumbfounded.  "I'm not looking to judge the person, but the person should have a judge. Until that time, he should be held so that he cannot commit these same crimes," Hunter said.  In another controversial case, she released a teen with a previous gun arrest who allegedly mugged a cop, ignoring the assistant DA's request for $25,000 bail.  And she also sprang an accused armed robber because she didn't buy the victim's story that he was able to overpower his attacker.  Additional reporting by Daniel Gold, Helen Freund, Larry Celona

And we're stuck with this mutt until 2020?! wtf !!
On the other hand, though.....Even though I don't agree with how this judge is protesting OCA actions against what the voters elected her for, this just goes to show you how even judges get screwed.... but in the end, it's only the public who really get screwed.

Where is Chief Judge Lippman's supervision of the courts?

There is an upstate judge who loves to take criminal cases..just so he can release almost all of them ..ROR...esp felonies, where he believes, from his ex-public defender status, he has the nose for who should be jailed and who should not..which is always... no one!
The crazy thing about that quacky OCA, is that they have given him a higher court "acting title" and he has been assigned to many of the specialty courts with these statements under his belt:
1) No one is guilty of driving drunk until their BAC is 26..which is his level, as he braggs to court employees. And if you are stopped, the best thing to do is have a quart of liquor on you and get out of the car and start slugging it down, so it shows your drinking was done while not driving.
2)In Domestic violence court he maintains that the majority of abusers are WOMEN! And this he states to female court employees with...CONVICTION!
So this type of judge is all over the state..and as you see OCA absolutely ADORES judges who screw the public and embarras the JUDICAL BENCH IN NY STATE.

Hey stupid, it's real simple, if she is so unhappy in the criminal section there is a reason she is acting out. Must be she has a problem making a few extra bucks. So transfer her somewhere and get it over. Then set her up good and proper and screw her good.
