    This is where a special prosecutor should be warranted to step in, AGAIN, for in many cases, this corrupt judge, has played a role in individuals receiving sentences that they should NOT have received!



    This sort of court, is UNexceptable and WHY, is the SC allowing such rederrick to exist and WHY is it taking so long to correct, once such corruption is exposed?



    These sort of cases, should be put up FRONT, NOT set aside and made to go through much delays to render NULL-AND-VOID!



    WHY, ARE THESE CASES CONTINUOUSLY DELAYED?



    PS: MY brother was raped and we have his MEDICAL RECORDS to PROVE he has ben treated for rape, YET these lawyers are ignoring these facts and going along with whatever these corrupt judges say.



    They seem to be under the jurisdiction of the judges that KNOW, THEY(lawyesr) are corrupt along WITH their counterparts;the judges!



    PPS: I'm ELATED, that another corrupt judge, has been mde to step down!



    His name should be ADDED to ILLINOIS JUDICUIARY REPORT BOOK and EVERY OTHER JUDICUIARY BOOK, so the WORLD, will know WHO he is(Judge COCHRAN!)
