CAMBRIDGE - Henry County Circuit Court Judge Ted Hamer on Monday allowed a California man to represent himself in court, after warning the man against it.

"In my opinion you'll be making a big mistake if you do that," the judge told Galen R. Maloney, 35, of San Francisco, who is charged with Class 3 felony failure to return from furlough.

Henry County Sheriff's deputy Bryan Early testified that Mr. Maloney did not report to jail as ordered on March 27 and was arrested April 5.

On cross-examination by Mr. Maloney, the deputy said Mr. Maloney was arrested on the campus of the Henry County Courthouse.

The judge found probable cause to believe the case should go to trial and set a May 23 pre-trial hearing. Mr. Maloney also will have a hearing on various motions in his case on May 2.

Last October, he asked that a 2010 sentence for Class X felony possession of cannabis with intent to deliver be declared unconstitutional. The judge did not grant the motion.
