Judicial Q&A: Judith Snively

(Note: I am running a series of Q&As for judicial candidates in contested Democratic primaries. There are a lot of judicial races on the ballot in Harris County this election, and so this is intended to help introduce the candidates and their experiences to those who plan to vote in March. I am running these responses in the order that I receive them from the candidates. I will also be conducting some in-person interviews of candidates who will be involved in contested primaries for non-judicial offices. Please see the 2010 Election page listed at the top of the blog for a full list of Q&As and interviews.)

1. Who are you, and what are you running for?

JUDITH SNIVELY – Harris County Criminal Court at Law #3

2. What kind of cases does this court hear?

Misdemeanors with maximum of one year sentences. These include DWI’s. Thefts, Assaults, Burglary of Motor Vehicle, Harassment, Criminal Trespass, Evading Detention, and Crminal Mischief.

3. Why are you running for this particular bench?

The Democratic Party placed me as a candidate for that bench.

4. What are your qualifications for this job?

I have been practicing criminal law since 1987. I have represented thousands of clients. I speak Spanish.

5. Why is this race important?

We need to make changes in the Harris County in regard to policies in Court. We need to make courts more accessible throughout the day.

6. Why should people vote for you in the primary?

My opponent Lloyd Oliver has run as a Republican in the past for statewide offiice and is currently under indictment in a felony court. I am a Democrat and have been one my entire voting history. I bring those values to the bench. Mr. Oliver is not recognized by the Democratic Party as a serious candidate nor part of the Democratic coordinated campaign.
