Walker County State Court Judge Bruce Roberts, the sole county-level incumbent to lose in the July 31 primary election, dismissed 53 traffic cases Friday as a one-time act of kindness, according to a news report.
"I seriously doubt that Judge Mullinax will ever do that," Roberts told the Walker County Messenger, referring to his successor, Billy Mullinax.
Roberts said dismissing the cases was a spur-of-the-moment decision, and it won't happen again. It was a "nice gesture, sort of an amnesty thing."
