Recall Judge Darold McDade

This petition had 3,668 supporters

See the latest in Utah judges taking sexual violence lightly because the offender is a "good man".

From Judge McDade's 2016 review:

"Appointed to the bench in 2007, Judge Darold McDade fails to meet the minimum performance standard for legal ability and scores below the average of his district court peers in all other survey categories. Survey respondents express doubt about the depth of Judge McDade’s legal knowledge and his ability to properly adjudicate complex matters. They question the clarity and reasoning of his oral and written rulings. "

Tragically, with this light ruling, (300 days in jail after the defendant confessed to abusing young girls  "more times than I can count") Judge McDade proved them right. Nicholas Lewis was my college roommate, and I adored him. He seemed an excellent human being, and I continue to love him and hope that he will turn his life around. However, Judge McDade has put Utah children in danger by treating sexual violence lightly. This is not his first time: McDade also sided with BYU over a rape victim last year. (

It's time for him to be recalled.

There are two ways this can happen: impeachment from the State House and Senate, or removal by the Utah Judicial Conduct Commission. Write your Representatives and call the UJCC at  (801) 626-3369.
