A Judicial Candidate that will ensure Blindfold Justice…One Case At A Time For All.
Ramona Franklin is the Democratic Judicial Candidate for the 338th District Court in Harris County. As a judge Ramona Franklin will ensure, “Blindfold Justice”, for everyone in her courtroom. Ramona is passionate about changing the court appointment system, changing the criminal court system from debtor’s court to reasonable bonds, ensuring that all persons accused of a crime receives fair justice regardless of who is representing them and ensuring that all sentences all equally granted. Ramona Franklin has decided that she will employ the “Blindfold Justice” approach in her courtroom.
What is the “Blindfold Justice” approach? The “Blindfold Justice” approach is employing the tenets of Lady Justice. Lady Justice’s blindfold represents the concept that justice is or should be determined objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of money, wealth, fame, power, fairness or identity and impartiality. The community has an extreme distrust of the criminal justice system because too many judges fail to use the “Blindfold Justice” approach. Ramona Franklin is committed to instilling confidence back into the community’s perception of the Harris County Criminal Justice System particularly the 338th Judicial District Court. Ramona Franklin will employ her biblical principles by handing down appropriate and fair sentences with a hand of grace, toughness and compassion.
