It's bad enough Judge Carl Bradford, Dechaine's original trial judge, seems unfamiliar with the Sixth Amendment guaranteeing the right to a speedy trial -- Dechaine's motion for retrial based on the exculpatory DNA remains unanswered after seven months.
...
If even a respected judge like Nancy Mills must be held to this standard in the abstract, what of Judge Carl Bradford, the original trial judge in the Dennis Dechaine case?

CARL BRADFORD is WYAR's resident Jazz expert. In addition to his weekly jazz show on WYAR, Carl is known as Justice Bradford, a trial judge in the Maine Superior Court. Always busy, Carl is also the leader of the Port City Jazz Sextet and the Port City Four, both of which feature the jazz side of the Great American Songbook.
Carl grew up in Detroit, Michigan, a hotbed of jazz during the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's. In 2001, Carl approached Gary King, the founder of WYAR, with the outline of what would become Jazz At Y-A-R . The rest is history.
