Letter: Recall is inappropriate for a judge who acts lawfully

Recall is inappropriate for
a judge who acts lawfully
You correctly conclude Judge Persky did not exhibit any pattern of leniency or bias in his sentences.
You argue Judge Persky should be recalled based solely on the Turner case.
In Turner, however, Judge Persky followed the law and imposed a lifetime sentence on Turner as a registered sex offender.
First, he followed the recommendation of the probation officer. That’s what judges do. Second, Judge Persky required that, for the rest of his life, Turner must register as a sex offender. Every three months, Turner must appear in the sheriff’s office or face a year in prison.
