Moran, yes!! Ever worked an 8 hour day in 3 years, no!! Never works to 5pm unless in trial. Lazy, yes!!! I wonder how much Houston Press got paid.... Best out of all on the bench....WOW... then we are in real trouble. Big DIVA - hates to be corrected, always wants thing done for her - watch in court, she never opens her own door, someone always brings her something to drink. Houston Press ---- you lost me with this one for sure.
Best Criminal Court Judge - 2011
BULLSHIT! Obviously the author or the Houston Press has been paid money to write an article stating this judge is "best criminal court judge." She is a horrible judge who knows less about the law than even the defendants....sad, but true. Also, sweet woman to your face, backstabbing as hell behind your back. Laziest judge I have ever met. Wants to be treated like a princess and loves anyone who kisses her ass constantly. Judge Cosper, a very experienced, highly respected judge who actually knew what the fuck she was doing, was replaced by a lazy, good-for-nothing judge like this....what a shame it was and what a slap in the face for this to be published. Judge Cosper would never be "impressed" with Jackson....where the hell did they come up with that?! PLEASE vote her off the bench as soon as possible. Houston Press....you have really failed us all this time around.
The author of this article clearly does not work within the criminal justice center. I'm a pro-Obama Democrat and I wouldn't vote for Maria Jackson. She is never on the bench at 9am. She doesn't know the law or criminal procedure. She constantly consults with other attorneys to help her make to make rulings. She has consistently handed out sentences that were not even in the proper punishment range. She has gone months without having a trial because she could not properly admonish jurors during voir dire. AND...her staff DOES have the demeanor of prison guards. Especially the bailiffs that yell at both attorneys and defendants for something as simple as walking into the well of the courtroom.
Are you fucking kidding me?!?!? She spends most of her time on the bench taking a break, can barely seat a jury panel because she's so busy busting it with her lack of knowledge of the law and constantly seeks external validation! The biggest "blessing" would be if she would step down.
Seriously? She's a complete moron. She has one of the highest dockets in the county and highest trial dockets as well. She has no idea what she is doing. She's a puppet on a string. And that's assuming she shows up for work.....
Ask her how many 8 hour days she has worked in the last three years.
