Judge Removed From Koziol Custody Case Now Removed By High Court


You just can’t make this stuff up!

Once again, well ahead of his time, Leon Koziol targeted a family court judge back in August of 2011, seeking to have him removed from a custody case involving his 7 and 9 year old girls in Syracuse, NY. Mr. Koziol repeatedly objected over the years to any sessions known as “Lincoln” hearings conducted without the parents present in the privacy of a judge’s chambers. Eventually, Judge Hedges granted Mr. Koziol’s motion and removed himself from the case. Only 6 months later, the judge was brought up on charges of sexually abusing a 5 year old handicapped girl and the New York Judicial Conduct Commission removed him from the bench.

This is the same commission where the 28 page report was submitted by Mr. Koziol that was published here at Leon Koziol.Com on April 23, 2013. Just 2 days later, the high court of New York affirmed Judge Hedge’s removal.

The following excerpt was taken from Page 9 of Mr. Koziol’s report:

Another named defendant was Family Court Judge Bryan Hedges who was removed from the bench by this Commission in a recent published decision. He admitted to sexual interactions with a handicapped 5 year old girl (relative) while in law school. The sordid details are better left to the decision but only months prior to his removal, this same judge presided over my ongoing custody case. My motion for his recusal was opposed by the divorce lawyer and child attorney on grounds that this judge was beyond reproach. It was fortunately granted prior to the standard “Lincoln” session in chambers (without the parents) involving my then 7 and 8 year old girls.
