After a Black Kentucky judge revoked a drug offender’s bond on Monday, the defendant hurled a racial epithet at him during a court hearing, according to Raw Story.
Adam Satterly reportedly flipped out after Judge Olu Stevens revoked his bond on drug charges, earning him 60 days behind bars, notes the report.
Via Raw Story:
Punk a– ni–er,” Satterly could be heard saying from a hallway just outside the courtroom, according to a video of the hearing.
“Oh, you didn’t mean it like that?” the judge responded tersely, telling Satterly he was holding him in contempt of court. “You don’t speak those words in here. And that word particularly, you don’t use that word. I’m going to give you 60 days for having used that word. I’m going to hold you in contempt right now for having used it in this courtroom. It’s disrespectful; don’t ever do it again.”
It is at least the third time in the last year the issue of race has come up in Stevens’ courtroom. Stevens, who is black, had stopped hearing cases for a few weeks in the wake of a scolding by Kentucky’s chief justice and an ongoing investigation by the Judicial Conduct Commission over his comments alleging top prosecutor Tom Wine wants “all-white” juries.
We’re glad the judge held the defendant accountable for his actions. The question, however, is will it make a significant impact? Watch the video above and sound off in the comments.
