That's the language they used recently in overturning a death sentence obtained in her court, declaring her behavior had "infected the integrity of the trial process." Reported the Express News:
Death penalty cases get a lot of additional scrutiny, but my sources around the courthouse tell me this isn't the only instance where, in Judge Roman's court, there's frequently been an "absence of an impartial judge on the bench" that “infected the integrity of the trial process," not to mention many other judicial functions.
Democratic primary foe Anthony Zamora cited the 4th Court ruling as the reason he ran against Roman, and the judge countered that relying on the reversal was premature because it was on appeal.
Democratic voters sided with Roman, who does not have a Republican opponent in November.
But it is no longer premature to cite the 4th Court's reversal.
Unfortunately, with no GOP opponent in November, there's little to be done. As the Express News delcared, "Citizens can only hope that she shows a new dedication to professional standards in the future." How frustrating! Roman really shouldn't be on the bench after what amounts to a no-confidence vote by the 4th Court of Appeals and the CCA.
