To which the prosecutor should have responded, "then let him testify."

Wouldn't it make more sense for God to tell this to the jurors?

If you replace Texas with Saudi, people would be saying this is proof of how insane and backwards they are in that part of the world.

>Robison’s actions could trigger an investigation from the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, which has disciplined Robison in the past. So, he has a history of this sort of thing. See below: >In 2011, the commission slapped Robison with a private reprimand for improperly jailing a Caldwell County grandfather who had called him a fool for a ruling Robison made in a child custody case involving the man’s granddaughter. I get the feeling he’s done more shit like this *Edit: Hey, I can see my house from here!*

Is this the Sharia law everyone warned me about? >The jury went against the judge’s wishes, finding Gloria Romero-Perez guilty of continuous trafficking of a person and later sentenced her to 25 years in prison. Sounds like these people didn't read the good book of Dune, "one cannot go against the will of God".

And by "God" he means "bribe."

What kind of a shithole country would allow this to happen?!

This is the complete opposite of what happened the one and only time I served jury duty. We totally refused to enforce the law and the judge was like, "Really? Um....okay."

As a Christian that is completely unacceptable, and he should be removed from his office. Your personal beliefs should not interfere with your ability to do your job. Can you imagine how people would react if a Muslim judge did that same thing?
20 Jan 2018 04:32 - +720
cool so he's never going to be a judge again right? right guys?

Sounds like an ACTIVIST JUDGE

Something something separation of church and state.

and by "God" he meant "Defense Attorney" and by "told" he meant "paid him to say"

Every day I read news proving how fucking dumb humanity is.

Defense kicks off their closing argument: "So, with God as my witness..."

This guy sounds like a total kook, and I think most everyone, including Christians, can agree that someone stating "God told me" is not a good way to get a just verdict. It's also important to note : -the jury went against his recommendation -he recused himself from the sentencing -it sounds like he will (hopefully) be facing some sort of punishment, and perhaps be removed as a judge.

If it was Alabama his next position would be on the state supreme court.

So he's hearing voices and doing what they say?

People who think God talks to them should never be in a position of power , especially a judge where it literally could be life or death situation..

God reaches out to people in many forms. Sometimes he chooses the form of a briefcase full of money.

Step 1: Get elected to the bench. Step 2: Derail a trial with appeal to a higher power. Step 3: ??? Step 4: Prophet.
