The judge is the person who presides over your criminal case. It is their job to make legal rulings about your case and to sentence you if you enter a plea or if you are found guilty at trial. NEVER EVER WRITE A JUDGE ABOUT THE FACTS OF YOUR CASE! All correspondence sent to a judge is public record. Not only won’t the judge read it, but the State will use it against you.
