William M. Windsor, candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, has introduced state legislation designed to reform the legal and judicial process.  These are changes that Windsor says are desperately needed.

The legal systems and judicial systems in Georgia and every state in America must be reformed.  Dishonesty and corruption have stolen the rights of every American.

This is Part 10 of a series of articles that will address the proposed legislation for Georgia.  This proposed legislation eliminates the requirement of a law degree to be a judge.

These changes are an addition to Georgia Code Title 15:

TITLE 15. COURTS

§ 15-6-4.  Qualifications of judges


No person shall be judge of the superior courts unless, at the time of his election, he has attained the age of 30 years, has been a citizen of the state for three years, has obtained a high school diploma, has never been convicted of a felony offense or any offense involving moral turpitude contrary to the laws of this state, any other state, or the United States, has practiced law for seven years, and has been duly reinstated to the practice of law in the event of his disbarment therefrom. and has never been disbarred as an attorney.

§ 15-7-21.  Qualifications of judges; restrictions on practice of law; removal, discipline, and involuntary retirement

(a)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this subsection, each judge of the state court shall be a resident of the geographic area in which he or she is selected to serve, shall have been a resident of the state for three years next preceding the beginning of his or her term of office, shall as of such date be at least 25 years of age, and shall have been admitted to practice law for seven years.
has obtained a high school diploma, has never been convicted of a felony offense or any offense involving moral turpitude contrary to the laws of this state, any other state, or the United States, and has never been disbarred as an attorney.

15-8-7. Qualifications of judges

No person shall be judge of the superior courts unless, at the time of his election, he has attained the age of 30 years, has been a citizen of the state for three years, has obtained a high school diploma, has never been convicted of a felony offense or any offense involving moral turpitude contrary to the laws of this state, any other state, or the United States, and has never been disbarred as an attorney.

§ 15-10-22.  Qualifications of magistrates; restrictions on practice of law

(a) Each magistrate shall have been a resident of the county for one year next preceding the beginning of his term of office and shall as of such date be at least 25 years of age and shall possess a high school diploma or its equivalent. However, an officer becoming a magistrate pursuant to Code Section 15-10-120 shall be eligible to the office of magistrate without the necessity of meeting these qualifications. Additional qualifications for the office of chief magistrate or magistrate or both may be imposed by local law.

(b) A magistrate who is an attorney may practice in other courts but may not practice in the magistrate's own court or appear in any matter as to which that magistrate has exercised any jurisdiction.

Notes:  There must be no requirement of a legal degree and legal experience for judicial positions in cities, counties, and states.  We need honest people as judges, and the legal profession seems to cause many people to be less than honest.  Lawyers are a big part of the problem with the legal system.  Lawyers as judges come to the position with a built-in prejudice for their friend attorneys and may have a bias against attorneys they faced.  If the participants in a case go by the rules and the law, any intelligent person can serve as judge.  It is unfair to limit judge positions to attorneys.  Surprisingly, Georgia law allows a convicted felon to be a judge; that needs to change.

    Judges

    Judicial Corruption is rampant.  Our rights to a fair trial are a myth.  Many judges are totally corrupt.

    Constitution

    Our fundamental rights have been taken away by a government of wrongs. Stolen by corruption.

    Attorneys

    Misconduct is everywhere. Dishonesty abounds. Perjury, subornation of perjury, corruption!

    Police

    Abuse, Dishonesty, Corruption.  It's all common with Police and Law Enforcement.

    Government

    Government Dishonesty is Bad.
    We must find honest people
    and make them accountable
    to We the People.
