It looks like
Judge Mike Anderson, presiding judge of the 262nd District Court of Harris County and
Judge Reagen Helm, presiding judge of Harris County Criminal Court at Law #1have both decided
not to seek reelection. Both of these judges will be missed for different
reasons. Judge Anderson is beloved by the prosecutors for the toughness
he displays. Meanwhile the prosecutors have been trying to remove Judge
Helm from all family violence cases because of his lack of compassion
for the victims in those type of cases.
Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer I have been treated fairly by both judges. I have known Judge Anderson
since I was in the Harris District Attorney's Office over ten years
ago. Moreover, I was friends with Judge Helm's Court Coordinator,
Karen Harrison, before I became attorney.
