Portrait Unveiling for Judge Mary Bacon

Tomorrow, May 5th, 2015 at 12:00 p.m., there will be a portrait unveiling for retired 338th District Court Judge Mary Bacon on the 20th Floor of the Criminal Justice System.

Judge Bacon has been retired for some time now, but I had the pleasure of trying a case in front of her when she was a visiting judge.  Not only is a great judge, she is one of my favorite people.  I'm very glad to hear about the portrait unveiling.

Please come by if you are in the neighborhood and have the time.

I wish I would have known about this earlier. Judge Bacon was one of my favorites. She used to go on ride alongs with NE officers because she wanted to see first hand how things happened, rather than just listening to testimony. She thought it would make her a better Judge. She got a kick out of reading suspects their Miranda Warning. When we had a particularly long trial in her court, which seemed to be often, she would call us into her office and offer us the couch and the floor where we could lay down and take a nap. She knew we worked night shift and didn't get much sleep during trials. She was one of a kind. Need more like her...
