I am one of the individuals who was wronged by Judge Redmond. Though she is just being "censored", it does not bring back the money that my family had to spend to get me out of jail after my son "allegedly" used a profanity in the hallway. I am a single parent with an autistic child and she "stole" from my family. She has caused so much heartache and caused my father to develop diabetes from all the stress. I was innocent and all she cared about was that a teenager "offended" her in the hallway. Laws need to be changed to make these "legal crooks" accountable for their actions. I will be notifiying the Governor to show her first hand an example of why Michigan is in the economic situation that it is in now. So much government dollars are spent to investigate judicial misconduct. I pray that one day someone does to her what she has done to me and my family.

How did she "steal from your family?"
Why were you in her courtroom in the first place? Did she put you in jail because of (your child's) contempt of court, or because of something else that you did?
Was your bail/bond within sentencing guidelines?
Just wondering...not trying to be funny, here...seeking facts.

In response to "Soundoff", the facts are that I had spent the previous night in the Shelby Twp jail as my teenager had dialed "911" when I hit him with a belt (once on his shoulder). Keep in mind, my son has oppositional defiant disorder and had previously been in the juvenile dentention center three times. As a single parent of two children, my other son having autism, I was exhausted, frustrated and at my wits end with my teenager. I was in front of Redmond on Sunday a.m. as she was a visiting judge. My parents had brought the $500 that they were told would be my bail. The judge set the bail for $500 and I was charged with domestic violence. When my parents went to pay the clerk the $500, they were told that the bail was changed to $25,000, no 10%. My Mom went back to talk to the Judge of which she stated that she changed the bail because the cops, who followed my parents and family out of the courtroom, said that my teenager called her an "asshole" for setting bail at $500. My Mom said, "why are you punishing my daughter for something that her son said?" My son even offered to be put in jail and to please let his Mom out. She refused. My parents had to pay a bailbondsman $2,500 cash to get me out. This is a nonrefundable fee. I was found innocent of domestic violence as it was deemed parental discipline. Two months later, my son was charged with "Disturbing the peace" for this same incident in the hallway. Keep in mind that this was a Sunday and there was no one else in the hallway except my family. There is alot more to this story. I have no criminal history, am very educated and have suffered much from retaliation as a result of my disclosure of unethical, corrupt actions of certain individuals. Judge Redmond has brought a national embarrassment to the city of Eastpointe. She is just trying to do "damage control" to save her job. She needs the health insurance for her illness. Please go to the JTC website to read the details. She plead guilty. Let's see what happens with this saga of corruption and stupidity. Shame on her for what she has done and the emotional and financial suffering that she has caused so many families. Eventually I pray that justice prevails and she gets what she deserves. I am a person of principle and honest to a fault. I do not have to cover my tracks like Judge Redmond. I pray that she does the right thing and resigns. It is possible that her medication for MS may be affecting her ability to make rational decisions. In reading each of the cases, you will see that she has a problem with anger and impulse control. I speak the truth and this unfortunate incident could happen to you. Something good has to come out of all of this "evil" that my family and I have experienced. Jeannine L Somberg

Thank you, "Victim," for your honesty and candor. I had read about your case prior to this point, but I wasn't sure whether/not I was reading your story on Topix.

I would have to agree with you...changing the bond/bail after the fact is what a reasonable person could call "bargaining in bad faith." Wow...this is absolutely uncalled for and unethical. God bless you & your family.

Thanks, I have decided to not write an editorial to the paper. I need to put this "bad dream" behind me. I have learned of major corruption within Macomb County. Redmond will eventually get what she deserves. It is unfortunate that judges have unlimited power and are not held financially accountable for their actions, i.e. no civil liability. I pray I can put my life back together and regrow my business to support my son. I doubt that she will ever get elected again.

Once the judge ends your case inside the courtroom, it is illegal for them to alter any judgement until the case reconvenes at another time. As a former victim, of which I proved I was innocent, I learned just how corrupt and unfair the system is. Wayne county is the worse.

It is the corrupt/incompetent/retailiato ry court system that wastes taxpayer dollars. The initial waste starts at the government level.

FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN WRONGED BY JUDGE REDMOND HELP GET ONE OF THE OTHER PEOPLE RUNNING AGAINST HER ELECTED. SHE DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE A JUDGE. WE NEED TO VOTE HER OUT OF OFFICE, AND HAVE HER TAKE HER LOVER AND THE REST OF HER HENCHMEN AND GO. SHE CAN HIT EIGHTMILE FOR ALL I CARE, BUT GET THE HELL OUT OF EASTPOINTE.

I have just been found in violation of probation
because I did not get me kennel repaired in the allotted time. There`s a chance I may go to county jail for a few days. This stems from a dog at large ticket. Animal control officer Rose Adamowicz recomended one year of reporting probation. So that is what Redmond did. This dog has never bitten anyone, jumps the fence and comes right back. As far as I am concerned animal control has been given too much power, and it has gone to her head.

So you were given an opportunity to get your kennel repaired and did not - with no initial consequences - and now you think that you deserve ANOTHER chance? Don't blame the judge. Blame yourself.

Don`t you think this is a waste of taxpayers money? This stems from a dog at large ticket. Not murder. There is nothing wrong with the kennel to begin with. It boils down to harassment. I hope you can`t vote in Eastpointe!!!!
