Pequea, PA 17565
Education Associate's Degree in Specialized Business from Central Penn College
Qualifications Certified by the Minor Judiciary Board of Pennsylvania 29 years of court experience
Municipality Resides in Martic Township. Seeking position which includes Quarryville Borough, Colerain, Drumore, East Drumore, Eden, Fulton, Little Britain, Martic and Providence Townships
Integrity, fairness and impartiality. The ability of a judge to listen and take each case on a case-by-case basis. As my current career provides me the opportunity to be in court on a regular basis and hear so many cases, one cannot assume that one has "heard it before". Every case has its own set of unique facts, and a judge must listen to each case as though they have never heard it before, yet use their experience and knowledge to properly rule on the case.
I would recuse myself from any case that would be a conflict of interest. These cases may include but are not limited to those involving family members, personal friends, cases that I have worked on prior to my taking office, or any case that I had prior personal knowledge or involvement with.
As a Magisterial District Judge, I would inform people of their rights to an attorney, and if they cannot afford an attorney, one would be appointed for them. I would provide them with the written contact information, as well as verbally inform them of how to get in touch with the Public Defender's Office. Upon their preliminary arraignment, I would allow them to make a phone call to inform their family or attorney of where they are. Treat all persons fairly, impartially and with respect.
