Deaf Justice

Here's a few cases uncovered from the court files, available to the general public, which are related to our judicial system, involving these Deaf individuals.
Case #1: A murderer got off the hook when the judge declares a mistrial because the court couldn't find an interpreter for the lone Deaf juror.
Case #2: An interpreter is now behind bars, committed perjury after she admitted she was uncertified, even though the Deaf defendant was acquitted.
Case #3: The State couldn't prosecute a Deaf suspect, accused of robbing a local bank, having to release him after failing to assures his rights to an immediate trial due to a lack of qualified court interpreter. The Deaf is now somewhere in the Caribbean, "living it up," cruising on his yacht bought with the loot.
