Voters in five Counties have a choice between Amanda Williams (incumbent) and Mary Helen Moses on Nov2. Early voting is open so long lines can be avoided.

I think this has been one major mud slinging campaign by Team Moses. They have my vote for best Fiction Authors and nothing else.

It seems like Team Moses are sore losers, Anon. Now they have recruited some jewish guy from Chicago to sling the mud.

I do not know how much effort Ira Glass put into presenting all sides of his story regarding Glynn County's Drug Court program and its Judge, Amanda Williams. Of course it is very easy to get people who have failed to graduate drug court to talk to you and give their negative opinion on the subject. This proved to be an effective way to capture listeners and trigger emotional responses.
I am a graduate of Judge Williams' Drug Court Program in Glynn County. This program saved my life. Drug Court was one of the hardest things I have ever done. When I first entered Drug Court I thought I would "skate through" the program and continue my life as it was before. I was in for a real surprise. Part of Drug Court's success for my case was the harsh realities of what I faced if I continued to live the way I was living before. I learned through many consequences and second and third chances that Judge Williams and her staff meant business, but the disease of addiction meant life or death for me.
Drug court taught me that I had a choice to either remain a willing hostage, bound by the obsession to drink and use drugs at any cost or to take action with the help and guidance of counselors to participate in the rehabilitation of my life and become free from the obsession to drink and use.
The nature of the alcoholic/addict is protect what is comfortable to them. So when Drug court says that they need to say goodbye to their trusted friends, drugs and alcohol there is an expected resistance. It is what becomes of this resistance that is valuable. The addict at this point is met with a decision whether to continue to drink and use regardless of the consequences like going to jail, again... or other institutions, or to listen to someone one else for a change.
Two years after graduating I still have the privilege of being part of the drug court support system. I also went from being a high school drop-out to honor student in college while maintaining long term employment. I also have close relationships with my family and peers. None of this would be possible without Drug Court. These are but a few of the great changes that have come into my life from this program and the people who support it.
I also urge Ira Glass and listeners to consider that contempt prior to thorough investigation is stifling to the truth.

You stated: "Of course it is very easy to get people who have failed to graduate drug court to talk to you and give their negative opinion on the subject." Yeah, strange that he could not get JAW & Associates to talk to him and give any positive opinion on the subject! Perhaps they will when it goes to trial!

Please help us! We have been suffering since this woman took office in 1990! Now that her power-mad corruption has finally reached national attention we have a chance to finally get rid of her. Listen to the podcast. Google her name. This doesn't even address her conduct in civil and criminal court! No matter where you are, write and express your outrage!! http://impeachjudgewilliams.com/what-you-can-...

Please provide the link for it. Thanks!

ps I had already heard that the 'star witness', who copped a plea, was so 'high' that he had to be carried in & out to testify against Ms Price. JAW will allow anything when it suits her agenda!!!

"It is error for any judge in any criminal case, during its progress or in his charge to the jury, to express or intimate his opinion as to what has or has not been proved or as to the guilt of the accused. Should any judge violate this Code section, the violation shall be held by the Supreme Court or Court of Appeals to be error and the decision in the case reversed, and a new trial granted in the court below with such directions as the Supreme Court or Court of Appeals may lawfully give." hmmmmm
