Judge Richard Lajoie  formerly from Timmins judge is well known for his corruption and obstruction of justice.

Known for stretching his neck over the bench to leer at breasts of of female lawyers and prosecutors with comments such as of "how very nice it is to see you today" while using body language and facial expressions to say, "I'm a corrupt judge, I'm a pervert and because I have absolute power, and there is nothing you can do about it.". 

His choice of liquor on evenings before court hearings the following morning is copious quantities of red wine.

Justice Richard Lajoie removes himself from cases and then puts himself back on cases to make decisions that would otherwise not be made.

One of his former court clerks in Timmins was Sue Farrell, who is married to Doug Farrell, later a Staff Sergeant,  a key power figure in the Corrupt Timmins Police.

In Timmins Richard Lajoie was the judge of choice for the local Children's Aid Society or anyone else with the right connections.

In one famous interim custody hearing he gave custody to his court clerk (NOT Sue Farrell) who has worked next to him for years  then declared a conflict to remove himself from the case. The order was never varied. Later the father falsely pleaded guilty to abduction in return for a promise for access that to this writers knowledge was never kept. The lawyer in that case took a $5000 flat fee for the trial that never happened but resulted in a plea bargain that as mentioned previously was never kept or more to the point, resulted in unexpected permanent injustice.

He holds hearings in which he is a party to the proceedings.

Judge Richard Lajoie refused to testify after first claiming in a bail hearing that he was "afraid". Judge Richard Lajoie stunned the legal community by hearing the same matter several times in his own court.

If you have Richard Lajoie hearing a matter, expect injustice and be prepared for a corrupt connection to someone somewhere.
