Judge Stanko put my mind at ease from the moment I contacted him. I called his toll free number as soon as I bonded out of jail, and he called me back within hours (on a Sunday)! I was in a panic, but he explained how the system worked from beginning to end. He knows all the players in the courts, from the clerks to the judges, and it was reassuring to have someone with his knowledge and experience represent me. I ended up serving no additional time in jail (on a felony charge) and I think even my probation officer was surprised by that!
