Judge
    (April 25, 1958- )
    Born in Munich, Bavaria, Germany
    Judge of the 30th Circuit court in Ingham County, Michigan (elected in 2008)
    Served as Judge of the 55th Michigan District Court (2004-08)
    Gained national recognition presiding over the trial of Larry Nassar during the USA Gymnastics sex abuse scandal (2018)
    She wrote two crime novels.
    She was nicknamed 'Barracuda Aquilina.'
    At one point in her career, she hosted a radio talk show called 'Ask the Family Lawyer.'
    She drew comparisons to Judge Judy (give yourself a cookie if you didn't see that one coming).
    She issued a ruling challenging the constitutionality of the state of Michigan's declaring Chapter 9 bankruptcy, but legal scholars rejected it (2013).
    She was born to a German mother and a Maltese father, at an Army base he was serving on at the time.
    She became a naturalized citizen at twelve.
    She graduated from Michigan State University with degrees in journalism and education (1979).
    She served twenty years in the Michigan Army National Guard, and became the first female JAG officer in the Michigan guard's history.
    She allowed over 150 women and girls to present personal testimony on their sexual abuse by Nassar.
    When Nassar submitted a letter at the end of the proceedings allegedly detailing the emotional pain of hearing his victims' testimonies, she tossed it aside, saying 'this isn't worth the paper its written on.'
    She turned down multiple requests for interviews during the Nassar trial, saying that the focus of the case should not be herself, but on the survivors (she also said she would consider speaking to reporters only if it were a joint witness with one of said survivors).
    She sentenced Nassar to up to 175 years in prison for sexual abuse of juveniles and young women over the past two decades.
    Her sentencing of Nassar went viral, famously saying: 'My page only goes to 100 years. Sir, I’m giving you 175 years, which is twenty-one hundred months. I just signed your death warrant.'
