Sheyboygan County Circuit Judge Timothy Van Akkeren once again has shown that he's the criminal's best friend.
You'll recall less than two months ago Van Akkeren made a blunderous ruling to set aside a child molester's conviction just minutes after the jury found him guilty.
Now he's slapping the wrist of a fifth-offense drunken driver, giving Jason Kress 30 months probation with only six months in the county jail.
Probation? For a felony drunken driving offense? And only six months in jail?
A judge this wacky needs to be recalled -- pronto.
