    What do you think of the judge’s action?

    Personally I think she got on her high horse and was upset that certain members of the courtroom were not showing deference. For whatever reason the lady was laughing but when she realized the judge was upset about this she began to exit the courtroom. She was already walking away and was not causing any additional problems. But again the judge felt disrespected and threw the lady in jail out of spite. We can’t help what we find funny.

    That does seem very harsh, but i'm glad they at least got punished.

    The article says that the same judge reduced the sentence to one day and gave her time served.

    It was a great job by the judge. She said 3 months to scare her, then called her back to the bench the next day and reduced by to one day time served.

    *Puts on internet lawyer hat*

    "A finding of being in contempt of court may result from a failure to obey a lawful order of a court, showing disrespect for the judge, disruption of the proceedings through poor behavior, or publication of material or non-disclosure of material"

    Seems like this qualifies. I don't know what the appeal process for something like that is because it would suck if a Judge can deem any innocuous action you have as contempt. Having said that we don't get to see this ladies actions before hand so hard to say either way but if she was laughing over someone losing a family member I don't exactly feel much sympathy. :idk:

    I disagree. Judges should not be throwing around harsh fake sentences to scare people. It’s not their job.

    right, laughing in front of a family when your drunk ass daughter killed someone... fuck that bitch. Hope those 93 days give her some time to reflect on how shitty a human being she is.

    I'm sure one day, an appropriate sentence, would have gotten the point across just fine. Jail sentences are a big fucking deal. Arbitrarily throwing out an excessive sentence to "scare" somebody is a bad look for someone who is entrusted with taking away people's rights and/or lives.

    Is there a longer video where we can hear if everyone heard them laughing or if the judge only saw them laughing? Half the remaining family look like they would be ICP fans.

    I have it on good authority that McMurphy had a bombshell on this very topic today. I’ve put it in the spoiler for safekeeping.

    Judge during the arraignment hearing didn't fuck around either.

    http://www.fox2detroit.com/news/loc...5-killed-by-suspected-drunk-driver-in-redford

    While she is only required to come up with 10 percent of that, her attorney argued and complained that the bond was too high leading to a terse exchange.

    "You know what, I've been a judge for a long time," said Judge Charlotte Wirth. "I set my bonds to make sure people show up and that the community is safe. If you are threatening to take me to the Judicial Tenure Commission because I set a bond on driving while intoxicated causing death, you feel it's too high, feel free to do so. I'm finished."

    One day before Kosal was arrested she had gotten a prior charge expunged from her record.

    "She had a prior record as to a possession situation," her attorney Nabih Ayad said.

    FOX 2: "Drug possession?"

    "Yes a drug possession," Ayad said.

    "I guess she was out celebrating," said Rathel Fizer. "But on whose expense. At my son's expense."

    At first I thought it was harsh. But then I got a better view of the mom and saw that she was wearing an outfit that looked like pork sausage busting out of its casing and I concluded she should have been jailed for being feloniously gauche.

    I saw a guy get 3 contempt charges at 30 days each for sucking his teeth when the prosecutor presented facts. After the 3rd one, he was removed from the courtroom.

    I think the bottom line is there are still a few holdover feudal enterprises where you really need to know your place in the hierarchy of things and court is most certainly one of them

    If a family member of the person that murdered a family's child showed up to the funeral and took a shit on the grave what would that charge be? What they did was the same.
