A dumb criminal in Kentucky learned the hard way that his ignorance would not be tolerated in a courtroom after a judge handed down instant justice for his stupidity.
According to WDRB, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Olu Stevens, who is black, hit white criminal Adam Satterly with a contempt of court charge after Satterly directed a racial slur towards the judge.
Stevens had just revoked Satterly’s bond on a drug charge when Satterly yelled out “Punk a** n*****” as he was being moved from the courtroom to an adjacent hallway.
The judge ordered Satterly brought back into the courtroom just moments later and demanded, “Is there something that you wish to say to me?”
The defendant claimed the remark had been directed at his brother, and not the judge, also claiming, “I didn’t mean it like that.”
“Oh, you didn’t mean it like that?” the judge replied sharply, going on to inform Satterly that 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.”

This actually isn’t the first time that race has been a prominent subject in Judge Stevens courtroom. He had recently sparked controversy by complaining about prosecutors allegedly seeking “all-white juries,” and had chastised the victims of an armed robbery for “fostering” racist views when the mother wrote on a victim impact statement that being robbed by a black man had made her frightened of all black men.
According to a follow-up report from WDRB, Judge Stevens reduced Satterly’s contempt sentence to time served the next day after Satterly issued an apology for his racial outburst.
