He was less kind to prosecutors in several other cases.
He dismissed further judicial action against Rebecca Niven after prosecutors said they decided not to extradite her to Kanawha County when she stopped showing up at the Day Report Center. They believe she may be in Florida.
Niven was charged with two counts of entering without breaking in 2008.
In another case, Bloom expressed frustration when prosecutors failed to extradite Harry Clarke, who failed to appear on a marijuana possession charge.
Prosecutors said those decisions are made after considering each case, the charges and the possible whereabouts of a defendant. Sometimes, they said, criminals change their names and other identification information numerous times to evade capture.
It's more common to extradite criminals from surrounding states than from farther away, they said, and the budget for such expenses is not unlimited.
Bloom said that decision tells criminals that they can avoid their sentences and penalties.
"Then it's a terrible, horrible message that if it's not expedient, we will not pursue the case," Bloom said.
