General tips for dealing with Judge Baker:
  • Be on time. If you are late, he very well may throw you in jail.
  • Be ready to pay almost all of your fine up front when you plead guilty. Judge Baker is not a fan of payment plans.
  • Don’t expect more than one continuance. Judge Baker runs a tight ship and a clean docket.
