The legal system in osceola county is based not on justice but on how much money they can take from the poor people. They put people in jail for littering or driving on a suspended license. Judge draper is the worst judge. She is money hungry and has the public defenders sleeping in the same bed. So walk the line if you go to osceola county beacause judge draper will be waiting for you and your wallet.

There hasn't been anyone out into jail for lettering according to the corrections office.People driving in a suspended drivers license will go to jail in every county in Florida. Judge Draper is tough and the people that continue to re-elect her appreciate that.

Judge Draper is Drunken mess and is a poor excuse for a JUDGE!! Osceola county has one of the worst judicial systems in the country!! I know this first hand ( no i am not a criminal and nor have i ever been charged with a crime in any form.)How she is still a judge is beyond me. I guess shes still here due to the millions of dollars shes stealing from poor innocent people. With all the time shes spends drinking and belittling people she could actually be making a difference in this community!

My son was due to get out of jail, he had been there for 4 months, and Judge Draper had him take a drug test while still in court and handcuffed. He came positive for methanphetimines and she mocked him in the court room and sent him back to jail. I talked to the chief at the jail and explained the situation and he immediately took my son and drug tested him at the jail and nothing was in his system at all and the ph level was normal. The cheif called Judge Draper and told her they made a mistake and my son was released that afternoon. She was still rude to my son. Three other people tested positive for meth that day, all of them were in court from the jail. I wonder how many people were really clean? Too bad they did not have anyone to go to bat for them. Makes you think who's really on the up & up?!

Your suspended dl opinion is way off.A guy just hit a troopers car with a dump truck and was givin a ticket,he has a suspended dl.???? As for Draper, shes a mess. She cruises up & down 192 in her yellow vette goin 100+mph,gets pulled over & is givin an escort home!!! Ive personally seen it happen, twice!!! She goes out to Kenansville gets hammered & trucks it home.Crazy.Im not the only one who has seen this,ask around.Thiers also a rumor that she has a vested intrest in osc. jail.How is this not a conflict of interest??The more ppl she puts in jail, the more mony she makes!!??? What a joke!!!!

I agree that Judge Draper is terrible. I just dealt with her and she is sooo unprofessional. She was very rude to me ( the victim) and threatened to throw me in jail to. I am filing an official complaint about her soon.

Judge Draper was nice to me. I guess it depends on what the case is about. She's usually tough on people who do drugs but I find that she's fair.
