One Tough Judge – 48th District Court Judge Kimberly Small Takes Sentencing Seriously.

In 2011, 48th District Court Judge Kimberly Small made national news when she sentenced former UM and NBA player and ESPN analyst Jalen Rose, to serve 20 days in jail because of a drunk driving crash. Judge Small imposed the jail sentence even though the probation department recommended no imprisonment, and there was public support from several prominent figures. Judge Small agreed that Mr. Rose likely did not have an alcohol problem and that it was unlikely that he would get into trouble again. Judge Small considers jail to be a deterrent. Furthermore, she believes that her sentences serve as an example that she will not tolerate crime in her community. There was a considerable firestorm regarding this matter, and Judge Small refused to modify her sentence or waiver her principles. This case cemented Judge Small’s reputation as a harsh, no-nonsense judge (especially for OWI charges in Bloomfield Hills).

Not everyone who comes before Judge Small goes to jail. With the help of a great lawyer, the right strategy, and very persuasive and credible allocution, there are cases where even Judge Small will not require incarceration.
