U.S. Judge John Mendez of Sacramento; moronic loser


The state of California presented John A. Mendez with a law license in 1980 after he graduated from Harvard University Law School.


Former President George W. Bush was duped into appointing Johnny to a seat as a U.S. District Court judge for the Eastern District of California in 2007. Johnny didn’t get the appointment because he was the most qualified lawyer in the greater Sacramento area. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


In one matter, Judge Mendez was assigned to preside over a case involving several defendants who were charged for being involved in a multi-million dollar mortgage fraud scheme.


After the five defendants were convicted, it was basically a guarantee that they’d all spend some valuable time in a federal prison due to the magnitude of the fraudulent scheme. The scheme in and of itself cost various lenders over $5 million.


On November 10, 2015, the convicts appeared at the sentencing hearing before Judge Mendez. Unbelievably, Mendez sentenced each and every one of the convicts to probation despite the fact they were facing a minimum of 3 years and a maximum of 20 years. To state that the U.S. Attorney was stunned would be a monumental understatement.


In a lame effort at levity while he passed down his asinine probation sentences, Judge Mendez had the chutzpah to state:

“None of these people should be going to prison.”


Of course had these crooks robbed a bank, Johnny likely would have sentenced them to at least 20 years at Leavenworth. However, steal $5 million with a pencil and Johnny believes you deserve some kind of award.


Unfortunately, this is the kind of justice that is meted out when political hacks are appointed to the bench. Put simply, Johnny believes in “dispensing with justice” rather than “dispensing justice.”


As we speak (ca. November 2015), Johnny continues to sit as a U.S. District Court judge in Sacramento, California.
