    This should not even be an option…. Who can seriously have a successful trial through a screen there may be lags in the speech, misinterpretation, distractions…. you can be on your phone looking up the case details during the trial… I would rather do a bench trial like this over a jury trial. This idea won’t work. Minorities will find a reason to say they don’t have internet, a computer, or a quiet setting to participate in a trial. Majority of the defendant’s in criminal are Minorities… How will they have a jury of peers?

    I’m trying to imagine a fair trial coming from this under the totality of circumstances…. I personally believe alot of reversals will come from this…. ***oops I mean should come from this. The 4th only issue PCA’s.

      Will those who reside in the TRAILER PARKS claim they have the same or similar issues….no internet, no computers or no electricity . Most of the WHITE defendants live in the TRAILER PARKS. Right?

        Minorities = Less Fortunate?… or No?

        Trailer Trash= Convicted Felon?… or No?

        Can convicted felons participate in a jury?

        😅🤦‍♂️

    You can count me out ! Just how ridiculous can you get ?
    Pretty soon Broward Judges won’t even want to get out of bed, let alone conduct trials they are so lazy !!!
    Things like this could only be possible if you had really able and dedicated jurists in a organized judicial circuit with a chief judge that knew what he was doing or even cared.
    Its more like a traveling carnival around here !
    The only thing that gets their attention here is getting paid !

      They already have tracker collars: they’re called Control Cards and parking transponders. If the powers that be had any real interest in holding the slackers accountable they’d audit this information or allow it to be discoverable as public record, especially in normal times. It’s the last thing they want though, so they won’t. Whether non-partisan, Republican or Democrat, remember, it’s always them against us. Some of them care, of course. But many are lazy and abusive, and because far too many are in the latter category, they can’t allow any exposure of what’s really going on, because the rot is far too deep to allow an educated public to continue to have faith in the institutions if the truth ever came out. They’ll always circle the wagons. It’s up to honest citizens to call them out and hold them accountable. It’s always been that way.

    Having been found guilty I sentence you to 25 years hard labor and order you to turn yourself into the prison system by 5:00 PM or face 60 days in jail for contempt of court

      If you were found guilty through a screen would you show up? If there was a special facility to go to why not just open up court social distance is doable in a trial except for deliberation.

      Some of these are funny, but credit the Supremes where due. At least they’re trying to make the best of an impossible situation. Something is better than nothing. And with a kind and patient Judge a ZOOM trial could be ok. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many of those anymore. Credit the Supremes with trying though, and understand they have nothing to do with picking Florida’s judiciary.

    Pryor should try the first Zoom trial! Oh wait, sorry he doesn’t know how!!!!!! Then again neither does Neva or Gina. The SAO is the laughing stock of the legal community. Not one person left who could try themselves out of a paper bag.

        Simple Truth
        Canon 3
        A Judge Shall Perform the Duties of Judicial Office Impartially and Diligently

        D. Disciplinary Responsibilities.
        (1) A judge who receives information or has actual knowledge that substantial likelihood exists that another judge has committed a violation of this Code shall take appropriate action.

        (2) A judge who receives information or has actual knowledge that substantial likelihood exists that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar shall take appropriate action.

        (3) Acts of a judge, in the discharge of disciplinary responsibilities, required or permitted by Sections 3D(1) and 3D(2) are part of a judge’s judicial duties and shall be absolutely privileged, and no civil action predicated thereon may be instituted against the judge.

    I Am the Greatest!

    This is the legend of Ilona Holmes
    the most beautiful justice in the world today.

    She talks a great deal and brags indeedy of a muscular trial that’s incredibly speedy. The judicial world was dull and weary; with a champ like Ross things had to be dreary.

    Then someone with color, someone with dash, brought the judicial fans a running with campaign fund cash.

    The brash young Judge is something to see even if a higher court was never her destiny…
