We seldom see a judge, go to jail.
Now there are some judges who do think they are one step under being God and that they are never wrong.
Judge Joe Brown, 68, was observing juvenile court proceedings at the Shelby County Criminal Court in Memphis, Tennessee last March when he was approached by a woman who asked him to take a look at her child support case. He told ABC News at the time that he felt obliged to help her and ended up going before a judge on her behalf.
“When I insisted that the woman’s charges be dismissed, he started talking about, I’m not an attorney so-and-so,” Brown explained. “I said, ‘You know it’s wrong. … You’re better than this.'”
Brown was found in contempt when he reportedly became verbally abusive to court workers and ignored Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold Horne’s warning to calm down, according to local news reports.
The emotions may have gotten out of hand, or they may not have listened to him when he was speaking to them (the court) causing frustration and causing him to act out of character.
I believe he is a good man. He is passionate about fighting for fairness and what’s right. I used to watch his show, but I also do realize if that wasn’t his court, he was obligated to follow the rules of that court as he would want someone to follow the rules in his courtroom.
Everyone makes mistakes even judges.
