Sean describes his judicial philosophy:
I believe in the Constitution, above all else. The legislature creates the law, the executive attempts to enforce that law, and the judiciary’s role is to apply the law to certain sets of facts. Judges should not bend the law to reach a predetermined result, nor should they interject their own personal feelings into rulings. The legal system, and most importantly, the criminal justice system, is only truly fair to all involved when all participants, including the Judge, follow the laws as they are written. Judges, and certainly trial judges, should exercise judicial restraint and not attempt to create social change through actions on the bench.
