Judge Orders Courtroom Spectator Jailed for Laughing in Court

March 1, 2017

 

 

Last Friday in a courtroom in Michigan — a judge ordered a spectator to be jailed because she was laughing during sentencing proceedings for her 25-year old daughter who, last summer, drove drunk and killed a man and severely injured his fiancee.

During sentencing proceedings — the judge, Qiana Lillard, heard two people laughing in the audience, a male and a female. Judge Lillard called the man laughing a clown and said he could leave. 

 

Then the judge told the mother, who was also laughing, that she disrupted the court and she would go to jail for 93 days for contempt of court. She was taken away by an officer. 

 

The judge then sentenced Amanda Kosa, the daughter, to 3 to 15 years in prison for the DUI crash. 

 

Later that day the mother came back to face the judge and apologized. Her 93-day sentence was reduced to one day, time served. 

 

The video of the incident went viral with many people praising Judge Lillard. She posted on her Facebook page thanking people for their comments.
