Q: Can a judge go and talk to the jury during deliberation without his black robe on.

I ask why is court reporter way on the other side of the room and not taking notes. To record our meeting we had in the middle of the court room, During deliberation. It was me my pd state atty an the judge. No court reporter. Before trial started my pd and me had a meeting in attys booth. Something was very very suspicious about the whole trial so i ask my pd to look me in the face and tell me if she was being cohearst to lose this case before the trial started she never looked me in my eyes. she was looking down at her notes and said " terry u got to do what you have to do" and got up closed her file and walked away an never looked me in my face. I was arrested for a misdermeaner stalking. Then they raised it to a felony 90 days later. I had a divorced paper signed by a judge to pick my son up every other weekend, and drop him off back at my ex house. Polk county arrested me for stalking. How can one judge give me divorced papers an another county judge lock me up for stalking.

A: Yes, the judge can talk to the jury without wearing the robe. The robe is just cosmetic.
