The judge said, “I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this? The whole courtroom was laughing. I’m not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn’t a joke.”
Chad said that he didn’t mean it as a joke.
Look, I understand that for most athletes being submissive and learning to surrender is a hard thing to do but he should have taken accountability and said something like, “I’m sorry judge; that was a stupid thing for me to do, I apologize.”
I think jail would serve him well because he might be able learn a lesson from all of this.
That's ridiculous.. She said he should thank his lawyer for what he did. So he did what she said in a way that 99% of athletes do. It's not like he could have realized that everyone would laugh about it. It may not be a funny matter, but she seems like she needs to unclinch a little. Even if he'd said something she'd just throw the book at him anyway.
The judge is COMPLETELY abusing her power like MOST judges do..
Its gross that a judge can do such things. JAIL DOESNT HELP ANYONE!
