    Sounds more like this is the equivalent of a judge scaring a little bit of shit out of a piece of shit

    You can get out of my court or go to jail.
    Woman leaves court.
    Wait no, send her to jail.

    "Look at me" move by the judge. :twocents:

    Would like to see what led up to that though.

    I appreciate cleavage in pretty much every circumstance but, the courtroom, I just don't know.

    Re-addressing a direct contempt is very common. The point isn’t to necessarily punish the person in contempt but maintain order and decorum in the courtroom. So you hammer the clown, let everyone else cool off and leave, and then bring the person back later in the day or soon after and give them a chance to show some remorse once everyone’s gone.

    Imagine the political shitstorm that would have descended upon that prosecutor and judge’s office if they’d let that lady laugh in the face of the victim’s family and walk away Scott-free. The way it played out, the family probably feels like the system stuck up for them and the lady received a just punishment. Everyone wins.

    random question, do westboro baptist church members get jail time?

    No, because they don’t protest in courtrooms. Certain behaviors that would otherwise be lawful in public places can subject you to contempt proceedings in court.

    She could’ve accomplished the same thing without making it about herself. I’ve seen plenty of judges get the point across much more effectively and without making a mockery of sentencing.

    Same judge was talking about stuff off the record on a case, when the prosecutor attempted to make a record of the conversation, the judge held him in contempt of court and locked him up saying on the record he "didnt know shit from peanut butter "

    You’ve seen plenty of instances where a family member of a drunk driver who killed someone is laughing at the vicitm’s family in court?

    That's not what my post said. Nor is it even close. I said that I've seen judges more effectively use their power to hold a party in contempt. But, to answer the question, I have seen worse than laughing. People get into physical altercations and don't get held 93 days for contempt.

    I had a sister of a murder victim try and punch a defendant at sentencing, nothing happened to her other than the judge yelling at her a little bit

    You couldn't see what this woman was doing in the video and she's probably a piece of shit, but nervous laughter is a thing. It probably doesn't arise to the level that would attract a judge's attention and have her kick you out of court, but I suppose it could happen.

    Not trying to white knight for douchetits, but it could have been unintentional.
