    Respect for the voters

    Texas judge releases group of juvenile defendants after losing election: Reports

    A Texas judge known for sending kids to juvenile detention released a group of juvenile defendants who appeared before him Wednesday, in an unusual move that came less than a day after losing his bid for re-election, according to local media reports. At least four of the minors faced serious charges.

    Before Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin released seven defendants -- accounting for nearly all of the kids who appeared in front of him the morning after Election Day -- he asked if they planned to kill anyone before he released them, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    Democrats swept the benches the night before in 59 local Texas courts, according to the Chronicle. Devlin, a Republican, was among those ousted.

    Harris County public defender Steven Halpert, who was in court when the string of releases occurred, told the newspaper that Devlin was "releasing everybody."

    "Apparently he was saying that's what the voters wanted," Halpert said.

    Wow sounds like he should never have been a judge in the first place.

    If you can't a juvenile criminal by his actions, the judge correctly judged according to the law to determine if the juvenile was a potential threat to the public.

    And that's all you need to know. Justice served.

    Doesn't appear to have been a good move by the judge... just a poorly thought out knee-jerk reaction based on voter sentiment. Four of the released were facing aggravated robbery charges.

    By law, youths who are waiting in local lock-ups before their cases are resolved are entitled to detention hearings every 10 working days to decide whether they need to stay behind bars or can safely be released under supervision.

    It's not abnormal for Devlin to release juveniles facing serious charges, as long as they've behaved in detention and have adequate supervision in place on the outside, according to Halpert.

    It's funny to watch the middle-of-the-road and far leftist political types have to defend the fence they're sitting on.

    ZZ, I've always considered you a guy that would play fair, right down the middle, no matter what. The judge applied the law: nothing less nothing more.

    What are you reading into it?

    Sounds like the judge is the typical fired employee who no longer gives a damn. Maybe he bought some hookers and blow and had a big party with the kids he released.

    Sounds like you don't know what you're talking about.
    This is a guy who served in the Air Force, got his JD from South Texas, and practiced law for 30 years. In typical leftist fashion, you projected your socialist fantasies on to his application of the law.

    This is the guy you developed the Juvenile Gang court. So, you may want to check your facts. So far I haven't seen a single fact except that he was not reelected.

    If you want a little truth, then look to your socialist friends. I don't get what the big problem is. Democrats are anarchists anyway with their socialist agenda. Why should anyone be concerned that the judge let these juveys back into society. Think of it as drug war money not spent...

    I fully understand the premise of the releases for those who behaved in detention and were charged with non-violent crimes. Holding them in the system does far more harm than good... not to mention it's overloaded continuously. My main concern is when the charged offenses are in the area of "aggravated" crimes then you are dealing with individuals with a far greater potential of harm of others. This is where I believe incarceration is most warranted and would rather not see those types freely passing thorough the revolving criminal justice doors.

    I think you might be surprised to know that other countries view Judges and sheriffs being elected to be a bizarre concept.

    To think that your fate could be decided by someone holding a right or left view and not seeing eye to eye to the defendant is beyond scary.

    The potential to rush to prosecute/convict/hide evidence is just rampant with these positions being elected. Its frightening.
