Dishonorable Judge Nicolas Murion is also a district judge and runs drug court. False accusations from a hallucinating methhead caused felony PFMA and drug charges for me and drug charges for the accuser. The accuser had her charges dropped because an involved officer was found with child pornography, but mine remain, and now I have a 150k bond and warrant because I couldn’t afford to drive 885 miles but people that were 15 minutes away were allowed to appear by video. He’s also allowing CPS to continually violate my rights
