Judge Lisa Walsh was the intended target of some defendant produced airborne waste products on Friday. When the defendant launched his aerial assault, the proverbial "stuff" hit the fan...but thankfully not the judge.
The courtroom was now a hot-zone and was cleared.
The defendant, who is wheelchair bound, was wheeled into another courtroom where the Judge concluded his trial. The jury did not witness the outburst, but they did see the PDs closing argument and that was enough to acquit him.
The State gets another chance to flush the defendant down, because he is a career criminal and has other charges pending, not to mention possible new charges in assaulting Judge Walsh. No wonder she wants to be on the 3rd DCA (an appointment she richly deserves).
Because trivia is a hot topic these days, name another Judge who had excrement thrown at her by an unhappy litigant. Hint- she was one of the answers in the prior blog post questions.
THIS IS THE REASON IDIOT POLICE OFFICERS GIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT A BAD NAME
A Florida woman, who was the victim of domestic violence and whose estranged husband was in jail for crimes against her, was arrested after she went to her husband's apartment, retrieved the firearms he had not surrendered but had been ordered to do so, and brought them to the police station.

The story is here.
