Judge Raymond Myles murdered

leave a comment »

My great sympathy is expressed in this sad announcement about the murder of Honorable Judge Raymond Myles, age 66, during what is thought to be an attempted robbery, although it has not been ruled out that it could have been connected to a case.

He was known as a talented and fair judge who often pushed defendants to complete their GEDs.

He presided for two decades over many criminal cases including several high profile cases such as the murder in of famous singer Jennifer Hudson’s family member, as well as seven murders at a chicken restaurant.

Other judges and court personnel at the 26th St Criminal courthouse are shocked and grieving. This is a tragic loss for the criminal Justice system. Our prayers go out to his family and friends.
