Re: “Why Wake County Judge Abe Jones lost

"As senior resident judge, Stephens explains, he's "held responsible" for the administration of justice by the superior court. And it's in the administration where he found Jones' expertise lacking."

Judge Donald Stephens has avoided administering justice for years:

1. No court form exists to allow a defendant to plead not guilty in the state district courts.
2. No court form exists to allow a defendant to demand or waive probable cause hearing in district court per NCGS 15A-606. (That’s why cases get continued for years).
3. The ACIS court computer system records all court dates as jury trials. (So a court clerk doesn’t know if a defendant had a probable cause hearing before being forced into a jury trial).
4. The ACIS court computer system doesn’t contain a field to allow a clerk to input a probable cause hearing.
