Anyone else have trouble getting fair results from this judge concerning child visitation? I'm seeing he's very biased with females and in keeping children away from their fathers.

This judge ordered temporary maintenance when it wasn't even on court papers being asked for. According to law, the person getting the maintenance has to prove they are in need of it and show financial records to prove they need that money. None of this was shown. He broke code along with several other things.

You would not believe the unjust, biased rulings against my husband from judge Bowles... He has to pay so much he cannot afford to see his children.

Statistics show that children without both parent involvement are at higher risk for school dropout as well as getting into trouble in general. You'd think this judge would try to make things easier on fathers who are more than willing to be involved with their children

This may seem unfair to some, but he is trying to keep fathers from having sex with their daughters. This is why there are so many Democratic voters in Kentucky.

That's clearly not relevant to this issue. Hopefully you never have to fight to see your children nor see your children hurt over being kept away from their parent.

It seems nothing has changed in that area of KY. Be assured that it is not just that one judge but all in Jefferson and Oldham counties who play games with child custody and visitation. I dealt with this problem 30 years ago but at that time it was a retaliatory action taken against women who divorced their drunken, fornicating, disease spreading husbands under the new "no fault" divorce laws. Still the predominate prejudice has always been against fathers for no good reason that I can think of unless my above description of my ex fits. "The best interest of the child" is always the reason judges give for their decisions, yet seem to not understand that a child needs to have both parents in his life to serve his best interests.

At that time there was a group that formed called "Fathers Without Custody" by an elderly couple whose son had lost custody of their grandchildren to a very unfit mother. About 30 fathers, as well as some non-custodial mothers, attended the meetings and tried to organize a lobby to reform judicial guidelines for determining custody and visitation. They were ineffective to say the least. This group is probably defunct; I know the organizers have passed on. Your best bet though is to go through your state legislators to resolve the matter, rather than to focus on any particular judge. Matter of fact, your Governor Beshear was interested in this issue when I and some other like-minded parents met with him when he was Lt. Gov. Of course, that was almost 30 years ago and obviously nothing has changed.

I would like everyone who had been treated unfairly with this judge to contact me at He sentenced my husband to 180 days for contemp of court on 8/9/12, at a hearing where my husband was asking for a public defender since we could no longer afford proper representation. Judge Jerry Bowles said no you cannot have legal counsel go straight to jail. I am in the process of filing a complaint. The Judge Jerry Bowles has left my family FATHERLESS and I am now taking care of our 5 year old autistic daugher and 3 month old son, who my husband was primary care giver while I work full time. Enough of my rant, This has been very hard and draining on me :(
Please Help a now "single" mother thank you Judge Jerry Bowles aka dickhead

This turd sentenced me to 26 weeks of domestic violence classes knowing that I dont have the money to pay for it. I admmitted to wrong doings concerning an arguement I had with the mother of my child and he didnt let me tell my side of the story and basically sentenced me to jail as I have no way to pay for this. I got into a fight with the mother of my child 6 months before the court date, she turned me in to gain leverage in our custody battle and her child support case. I have our son 5-6 days a week and she wants me to pay child support. She will get it too because I am a man and she has a vagina...plain and simple, plus this guy has major sugar in his tank...of course he is going to side with women...dude could put a lisp on the word cracker....

my ex husband had this judge also and was royally screwed (not with me). He was the judge over my ex's case regarding a child from a previous relationship. Before the child support case, the mother of the child came to his mother's home while we were there visiting, walked in the front door without knocking and attacked me, while i was pregnant at the time. He jumped in to get her off of me while his mother called the police. We filed an epo on her. Court date rolls around and my ex *still* had bruises on him from that encounter- and judge bowles dropped the epo, revoked my ex's unsupervised standard visitations, slapped him with an ungodly amount of support and arrearages stating 'you are a man, and she is a woman smaller than you. I doubt you have a serious fear for her.' then advised my ex that if he saw him in his court room again, he'd put him in jail. I was furious over that for a long time, and lost all faith in the system that day.

it's hard to get consistent rulings in his court since he often has other judges fill in for him. he is absent more than the other judges.

and then honestly, a lot of times, the problem is not the judge, its with at least one of the attorneys on the case. i've learned that there are some really awful people practicing law in this city.

judge jerry bowles is less than crap. i'd rather have a bowl full of crap, than jerry bowles. i'd rather have a bowlful of cherries, but if i had the choice b/t a bowlful of crap, and jerry bowles, well then, I'd choose the bowlful of cherries, of course.

Well, all I will say is I have heard he is queer as a three dollar bill and he definitely does not like men in his court. I have been told he prefers the skirt, but I believe he is a skirt.
