I'm not going to get in to everything I was put through in judge Watkins court room and dont want to re live it. My daughter and I have been through enough because of this man. I will say this, I was told before I went into the court room that more than likely it was a done deal and that Putnam county has the good ol boy system. They were all so right but it even went further than that. The cruelty from judge Watkins was overwhelming and the fact that my now ex husband's lawyer was best friends with the judge didn't make things easy either. The way I was talked to and portrayed was shameful from people that know nothing about me but that didn't stop them from tearing mine and my daughters' world apart. They went on with there lives, unknowingly not realizing the buddy system changed my daughters life and caused tremendess Unrepairable pain. The verbal abuse from this judge was unimaginable. I feel for the people that have had to endure his reckless authority! The damage can not be undone and has damaged a innocent little girls life

I've been searching for a site like this for a few years now. It's amazing how things are just now catching up with this judge. I've been keeping up in hope that something will be done. So many of us will keep our fingers crossed on nov 27th.

Watkins failed in his own practice and he's a failure as a family law judge

just as you are a failure as a husband and father, Halburn.

He was a successful enough lawyer. to get your second ex-wife and her mother out from underneath their bankruptcies that you forced them into before you got married.

Judge Watkins and his idiot BFF's who run this county have caused my family much,much more grief than good. It IS the good ol boy system, as are the mag courts & just about every other power house here. The decisions are made before you ever (UNKNOWINGLY...at first that is!) walk into the court room. I am moving so I may possibly get a fair shot at a normal life again. I pray not every county is like this one. & no, myself or my kids did anything major. They missed 13 unexcused days because their grandparents passed away 2 months apart, & we went to be with our family during those terrible times.---& several Dr. excuses that I myself turned in did not get recorded. I didn't make copies because I didn't realize the attendance officer was also incompetent.

I wish u all the luck, my daughter and I moved out of Putnam county, things are still not back to normal, so much damage was done that I don't know if I can ever fix the damage Watkins caused my daughter. I choose to leave the past behind, never In a million years would I ever thought I would go into a courtroom to disolve a marriage and come out without my child, and my life. 4 years have passed although 3 or the 4 was was a fight for my daughter who I stayed at home with from the time she was born until 9 years old, I lived 9 years with a husband who worked out of town religiously Monday thru Friday and sometimes months at a time, I had never been in trouble with the law, I was a good loving mother to my children, I took very good care of them. My ex husband was in my youngest daughters life very little, he has a 19 year old daughter that lives 10 miles away, yet never saw her, had anything to do with her or paid any child support. My daughters, including my 20 year old daughter from my first marriage even wrote letters to the court which was ignored and not even considered, they would not allow my children to speak in anyway yet my ex husband was given full custody of my youngest daughter, she lived out of a suitcase for almost 3 years staying where ever he could find for her to stay y he continued to work out of town, I was told by my daughter and other adults there was physical abuse by some of his friends she stayed with, the court ignored it, my daughter began having a lot of trouble on school, she became rebellious, grades dropped, she had no care for life and lost respect for everyone. I finally got a legal aid lawyer who stood up for me, even though I still only got shared custody and he is still the primary custodian she lives pretty much full time with me. I was awarded very little child support that was ordered October 2011 but still have yet to receive. Her father is now in Virginia working for the next six months so she sees very little of him. She loves her father and has that love that is unconditional no matter what has happened. I support her with that and want her to be in he's life as much as time will allow but I have a lot of anger for what judge wAtkins and my ex husband has put me and my daughter through. I had a lot of fire in me in the beginning of all this but was eventually broke down and mentally drained from this hoo ruble nightmare. I feel for anyone that has to go through what I have and wish everyone the best. My daughter is 14 now she still has a lot of anger and rage. It breaks my heart, my little girl was a loving child before all of this but she just didn't know where she belonged for those 3 years, she never heard I love you, which is something I tell my children daily and always have, no matter how angry she makes me I remind her how much she is loved but those words don't mean a lot to her anymore. Throughout that time he had her I also want to say I constantly tried to contact her, I never knew where she was or who she was with, the paternal grandparents never gave her messages and allowed this reckless behavior all because they didn't want to upset their son.

Sounds like everyone has the same stories on this judge. We all know about this judge and his lawyer friends huh?! Curious to see if she's ever lost a case going into his court room. You have that right with the good ol boys. Everyone knows the outcome before entering the court room no matter how much proof you have. I surprised that we have a judge in Putnam county when one lawyers make all the decisions. Sad that children and good people suffer because of wrong doings. His day is coming and the others will follow unless they start changing their ways. I think there's a few dogs in that court room. I have faith that supreme court will do something this time.

This is going to be great... Now the bloggers can bite Watkins in his (backside) and the blogs can be sent to Steve Canterbury and his joke/JIC.

Funny how all the women responding have sripper's names.

Funny how all the IP addresses have Troy Suxhole's name on them.

I'm not sure who Putnam resident is as I see some type of long ongoing battle between these names halburn, sexton and a few others. I have no clue who u all are or y there seems to be an on going battle. Honestly I don't want to know, really none of my business. What I do want to say though is I reluctantly shared a small piece of my experience and story with others. I didn't know it was going to become part of this grudge that these apparent people have against one another, I have no clue about IP addresses but I am not associated with any of that drama, I am simply a normal human being, loving mother and hard worker that suffered the reckless abuse from judge Watkins court and the good ol boy system. I would have never told my story if I knew it was going to turn into a battle between these few people as every other blog does. For anyone that has experienced reckless behavior from the Putnam county court system my heart goes out to u. I thought that was what this topix was about, I was very much mistaken

Who do you think set up that blog?
It was Troy Suxhole.
He doesn't give a shit about your story. All he wants to do is make people look bad.

Now wait a second I don't know who Troy suxhole is but my story is true as I know of many others, I'm not here to make anyone look bad, I'm just telling the facts, as I'm sure many others are, and like I also said I wouldn't have told the only small portion of wait this judge did to me and my daughter if I thought it was going to be part of this tug a war between u few people. I have no clue what your grudge is amung one another, it is clear u people don't like each other for some reason and that's ok but you are very wrong about this blog being set up by someone to make another look bad, this judge has created his own problems by abusing his authority and hurting innocent families. My daughter never deserved to be a pawn in our divorce, ultimately she was the one punished by a man that decided he knew what was best for a family he knew nothing about except what his best friend and lawyer filled him with. Your grudge with this Troy suxhole or whoever he is has nothing to do with what has happened to a lot of innocent people. I am well educated and would never comment on something that had no meaning and I'm sorry I ever commented on this blog but the fact remains this isn't about just being out to get someone, this person has damaged many of lives, should he be punished?? What he should be is taking out of that particular position of authority. I have continued with my life, it hasn't been a easy road and it was for sure something no one would ever consider they would have to go through when dissolving a divorce but life goes on. There is a lot that has to be repaired due to the damage that was caused but I myself will never give up on making my daughters life normal again. That's what this is about, nothing more

If you took the time to know Troy you'd think differently. He's a good person who cares for others done wrong.
