Sorry, Corey…Time To Go

with 5 comments

A Facebook event has been created to seek the removal of Angela Corey from office.

This is a “virtual event” which requires nothing more than for you to sign the petition and phone, email or write to any or all of the officials listed below. The purpose of this event is to have the State Attorney of Florida’s 4th Judicial District, Angela Corey, removed…

Corey’s “tough on crime” stance has met with much opposition since she took office in 2009, most notably, her penchant for having juvenile defendants as young as twelve tried as adults. Her actions have become a burden for the taxpayer while eschewing studies which have clearly demonstrated that the chance of recidivism among juveniles incarcerated in an adult facility is much greater than those housed in juvenile facilities where the opportunities for rehabilitation and furthering of their education is available. This is not possible in an adult facility.

A case in point is Cristian Fernandez, who, if convicted, will serve a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Who will be the next child to fall foul of Corey’s ways?

More information about Cristian’s case can be found here and at the justice4juveniles website.

A recent study by Drs. Michael Hallett and Dan Pontzer shows Corey’s “tough on crime” stance to be counter-productive and that her “hard-nosed approach [is] causing the costly and unnecessary surge in jail population” at Duval County Jail, the cost for which is met, once again, by the taxpayer. Folio Weekly published an article titled ‘The Punisher’ last week about the study.

Corey’s scant regard for those whom she was elected to serve, is abundantly clear and it is time for her to be removed from office.

    • It is time, Ann. It concerns me that nobody has thrown their hat into the ring to run against her as yet.

      • I guess it’s cold call time. I know Corita and jso snuggled up makes all honest lawyers say no. I like Pat McGuiness and Ms. Finnell. Probably not their cup of tea, but I wish it was.

  2. Time to solicit and cold call. I’ll go door to door. Don’t be discouraged. Look up Judge Richard Walker Kreidler, died 12/27/93 after being indicted for receiving child pornography to his Chambers at the jax, fl, duval county courthouse. Two days later he killed himself. He was only 55. And not half as bad as corey. God has his own way of evening the score. She will lose. Jose Baez said he’d talk for donations collected. I didn’t know anything about that, so I said goodbye. Cristian will be Acquitted and make History. I can’t stop KNOWING it. I love my God.

  3. It’s nearly impossible to find educated people for this topic, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks
