Review cases by Judge Sherwood Bauer Jr. of African Americans

Target: Everyone, Government officials and people of color mainly.,

According to an article in the “Herald Tribune”it states that “Stuart Chase Legleitner was 19 when he robbed three men in a 2008 drug deal.Lamar Lloyd was 21 when he stuck up a Pizza Hut and gas station the following year.Both men pleaded no contest to two counts of armed robbery. They went before the same judge, in the same courthouse. Each had a single misdemeanor on his record. They tallied the exact same points on the scoresheets used to determine criminal punishments in Florida.But their sentences could not have been more different.Legleitner spent less than two years in county jail. He is now free to golf and fish on the weekends.Lloyd got 26 years in prison. He will be 47 upon his release in 2034. That disparity is not unusual in the courtroom of Judge Sherwood “Chip” Bauer Jr.Since taking the bench a decade ago, Bauer has been tougher on those with a darker complexion, often sentencing blacks to two or three times longer than white defendants who committed the same crimes.Or in the case of Lloyd and Legleitner, 13 times longer.”
