When was Sexton convicted of child abuse? That's a felony. He was convicted of a misdemeanor battery.

He beat his kids. That's abuse. The court can call it whatever it wants. Abuse is abuse.

Halburn, sexton, Harper, Hage are all losers. They are scum and you have to talk to scum in a different language. He admitted his mistakes with the others and it is over. Back to the tard cave you go....

Every one of the "poor me" characters that Watkins is yelling at is either a degenerate or a deadbeat.
Guess that's why he pled guilty huh? He knows he was in the wrong. He said it himself. FACT!!

. They don't deserve it as well as many other don't deserve it. More complaints will be filled. I saw on the news today that someone else filed. Some people may deserve punishment but most of these people do not. In any courtroom it needs to be professional. Simple as that. I just don't understand why the victims are still continuing to be victimized? They can't speak in Watkins courtroom and was ask not to speak to the media. Why shouldn't they be allowed to speak? What happen to freedom of speech?

Bullshit. I've been in his courtroom, he thinks he's a king instead of a judge, he won't let anyone even speak. This latest outburst doesn't even surprise me a little bit.
I don't think anyone is surprised by what we've seen and heard. Sorry that you and so many have had to deal with this pain. Hopefully this will change him.

So, if he changes, will others move on to find another crusade?

What about Ms Lambert and Ms. Farmer? What are they?
They are just 2 of the many good people who have been done wrong by the system. Many more will follow unless he changes his ways.

You WV "citizens" need to hang yourselves if you re-elect this borderline grenade.

If you had any do right at all, you'd be pushing to strip him of any pension or benefits he clearly does not deserve.

Judge Watkins is a jerk. he made my granddaghter have overnight visitations with her father even tho he flunked a drug test in court that day. The judge just told him not t smoke within 24 hours of picking her up, and not to smoke around her. Watkins also said he could sell a little to his brother if he wanted. That part of his transscript was deleted from the public transcript. Several people heard this including my daughters lawyer. My grandaughter was only 2 years old, and didnot want to go. Thank God her father decided he liked his drugs more than her. He doesnt visit and has never paid child support. In my book, Watkins got exactly what he deserved.

Wondering what everyone is saying now about all this.
Watkins got what he deserved.
Hage almost lost his life because he was being tormented by this guy.
His wife is obviously disturbed and needs help.
I can't believe his girls are claiming that he abused them.
They even have a restraining order on their own brother simply because he knows the truth and is siding with their dad.
This is sad, sad, sad.
