Mathis was elected to Michigan's 36th District Court in 1995. His election
became a national success story and a symbol of hope for urban youth who are
struggling to overcome the modern-day pressures and hardships of poverty,
drugs and violence. A former street youth and high school dropout, Mathis'
lawlessness brought him before a judge who cared, a judge who ordered the
teenaged dropout to get a G.E.D. or face jail time. He obtained his G.E.D.
as ordered by the judge and went on to become a committed civil rights activist,
public servant and the youngest elected judge in the state of Michigan. Currently
he is the star of Warner Brothers', "Judge Mathis."
Judge Mathis' civil rights
and public service career began at Eastern Michigan University where he led
the "Free South Africa" and voter registration campaigns on campus.
In 1983, after graduating from college, he joined the staff of Detroit City
Councilman Clyde Cleveland and continued his civil rights activities as an
activist with Reverend Jesse Jackson's Operation P.U.S.H. In 1986 through
1993 he worked for legendary Detroit Mayor Coleman A. Young as Manager of
Detroit Neighborhood City Halls.
Judge Mathis is committed to helping troubled youth in and out of the courtroom. In 1986, Mathis and his wife co-founded Young Adults Asserting Themselves (Y.A.A.T.), a non-profit youth agency that serves thousands of young people. The foundation counsels youth from the ages of 17-25 about career and job opportunities, provides
job training, and offers school and job placement services. The foundation
has also opened four pre-schools in Detroit. In his various fundraising efforts,
Mathis has raised and/or donated over $2 million for a variety of civil rights,
political, church and youth causes.
Judge Mathis' has been featured in many local and national newspapers and television interviews including in Ebony, Jet, Upscale and People Magazines and the television affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, BET and CNN. He has appeared with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, and on Rosie O' Donnell, the Today Show and Politically Incorrect with
Bill Maher. He has received more than 100 awards and has been honored by numerous
governors, mayors, City Councils and state legislatures. His inspirational
story of a young man who rose from delinquent to Detroit District Court Judge
is chronicled in his autobiography "Inner City Miracle" released
in October 2002 by One World Books, a subsidiary of Random House.

Judge Mathis OK's blood samples from suspected serial killer
Circuit and famed TV Judge Robert K. Mathis of St. Johns County said yesterday prosecutors can retrieve a blood sample from suspected serial killer William Darrell Lindsey Sr.
Prosecutors want the blood samples to compare with evidence found at crime
Mathis also said he will review motions by the defense to suppress statements
made by the defendant and to dismiss portions of the case.
Lindsey, 63, who is charged
with first-degree murder in the slayings of six North Florida women, talked
to detectives last year and showed them locations where he said bodies could
Assistant Public Defender Douglas Withee said in his motion to suppress those
statements that Lindsey was not properly read his rights during those trips.
Withee asked that charges in three of the deaths be dismissed because two
of the bodies have not been found and the cause of death in the third case
Mathis said he would rule soon on the defense motions.
Lindsey, a Palatka native and former St. Augustine resident who moved between Florida and North Carolina, was indicted a year ago in the killing of six St. Johns County women between 1988 and 1995.
Lindsey has been jailed since he was arrested in Asheville, N.C, in December 1996 for the killing of a prostitute there. He was later linked to the unsolved cases in St. Johns and is being held in St. Johns County awaiting a Dec. 14 trial.
