The Star has printed several articles recently about the mismanagement of our county’s juvenile court system. The court was overseen for many years by Judge James Payne who recently moved on to a state job. I was only Judge Payne’s guest for one night, but I could’ve told anybody who cared to listen that the juvenile court system was messed up. Payne ran it like it was his own fiefdom. Mismanaged is an understatement.
