This is why lawyers fear no-nonsense Judge JESSIE LESIIT-Even CLIFF OMBETA feels like urinating on himself when he stands before her

Friday October 19, 2018-High Court Judge, Jessie Lesiit, is a woman and a half in the legal field. She has built a reputation for herself as a no-nonsense judge and many lawyers treat her with reverence.

Lesiit unapologetically handed the death sentence to Lang'ata Prison's beauty queen, Ruth Kamande, a ruling that earned her applause and hate in equal measure.

She justified her decision claiming that young people should know it is not cool to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend.

According to Criminal Lawyer, Cliff Ombeta, the judge commands respect and fear from lawyers who stand in her courtroom.

“She is a very tough and straightforward judge, she gives all the sides an equal opportunity, in fact, a majority of my colleagues fear her," Ombeta stated.

He noted Lesiit has a respectable knowledge of the law which intimidates lawyers and that she shoots straight like an arrow.

"You can't go to her courtroom unprepared.”

“She is tough but very fair.”

“Even if you have substance you have to justify whatever you say in court.”

"Many lawyers dread her chambers.”

“She understands the law and so you can't try to present half-baked theories in her courtroom," he explained.

Justice Lesiit recently stepped down from hearing the Monica Kimani murder case where Journalist Jacque Maribe and her lover Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu are named as prime suspects.
