Kelly's -- -- -- -- on the docket today the slap heard around the courtroom sending one former football star to the slammer for a month.
But now he's asking the judge to reconsider.
It all began when Chad Johnson previously known as Chad Ochocinco.
Was in a Florida courtroom in connection with the domestic violence dispute involving his now ex wife.
The judges on the brink of accepting a plea deal with no jail time for Johnson.
Which Johnson seemed to really appreciate.
-- -- She sent to jail for thirty.
-- -- -- -- discuss it just build more former prosecutor now defense attorney and David Wohl who is a defense attorney John -- -- -- Complete overreaction by this judge and probably a sanction of overreaction by the judge Megan she got -- Because the whole courtroom laughed when this.
But -- professional.
-- made a gesture of gratitude to his lawyer why -- spend all courtroom to jab them because the only person who wasn't happening with Chad Johnson -- I don't understand where the -- came from in this and isn't universally accepted that you should -- be -- -- the bottom of the courtroom.
Is that that is not that that wasn't on the bar exam but it was an unwritten rule and I used to practice you know I've -- hot and I've got a handshake I've got a -- on the -- I mean wouldn't gesture I'm -- -- didn't think the above the table and -- -- in the -- -- -- -- right it could happen would be professional athletes do I don't think he intended at.
Off I don't know to -- that's better ball field and yes that's true but in a courtroom.
Where you're facing domestic violence charges David.
Megan this judge you know every judge is a different definition of decorum in their quorum and to this judge this offense was not much different than raising his hand and raising the middle finger.
She sought -- entirely inappropriate she was offended and they -- this isn't that a common.
Fourteen years ago I had represented a young man -- -- convicted on a three strikes case.
After the conviction the DA can watch means that you know he's very young all agree to thirteen years instead of 45 delight.
Well my client set down the judge started to do the sentencing and he said John you understand this and you understand that.
And my clients -- yeah -- did have what ever judge and the judge said you know what.
I'm not going through this I'm sentencing him to 25 to light pole and that's where -- state he's right now in state prison for it in the entire life.
All for stealing your computer out of a school also you have to be careful this is serious -- Is John -- this guy was accused of head biting his then newly -- wife during an argument.
He was -- simple battery and domestic violence she had to cut and her forehead.
They had a fight over what -- -- was an infidelity after she found a box of condoms.
From her newlywed husband and -- so he head -- his wife.
And then he got probation then according to this judge he violated the probation he -- even bother to show up.
Four to meet with his probation officer during that all the months of the previous months.
So she was ticked -- he was blowing off the -- he was showing disrespect before it ever got in there and was lucky.
Not to get any jail time in the first instance you -- give him up to a year associate I think she'd about had it before he decided to do the butt -- And that's very well could have been the case but then what the judge should have done what.
You don't you don't enter into these plea negotiations -- the attorney below the judges and Bob and she should have said from the get go listen I'm not gonna take any plea negotiation that doesn't involved up because I don't like -- history -- what she would.
Appears to be to meet and that she got -- Long way she she would -- ends and that he takes.
How on this defendant went actually is -- accurate -- up foreign accent.
-- losing admitting -- it admitting and to head butting his wife right that's -- was and it is so there's no question about his guilt or the four abuser.
And he you know Megan and I it's hard to find sympathy -- included a thirty days in jail.
Yeah yeah weren't patting him on the body was patting his attorney -- to judge it not being satisfied with your representation.
It doesn't really -- -- lot.
It wasn't just the -- and the but it was the laughter that took place after Gordon in a courtroom and basically turned her courtroom into a circus and make it at thirty days of course we all know that that probably means.
Seven days ten days maybe fifteen days means nothing look.
They're not in the -- any change in this order the thirty -- Afghanistan needs to -- a very valuable lesson that courtrooms are not football field and he got to conduct yourself accordingly and I hope is.
Otherwise have it.
Talk I want to -- you this this woman also -- the judge and he also gave her time in jail which was later where he later reversed remember this.
I don't see you below.
Going back again -- I believe I know you saying do.
I believe you did you say the -- Did you say that.
-- do they say that I -- -- Munich we don't want them motivation becoming too.
But he reversed himself after he -- some time to cool off Johnny do you think that's how this will go and have a hearing on Monday -- I absolutely -- And for the same reason David said because he's only gonna do two weeks anyway and I think this judge rather stick behind a bad decision that admit that she reacted emotionally and not like a judge -- Quickly -- -- what do you think.
For her I think I think it's gonna remain absolutely thirty days isn't thirty days and the judge -- to make a point and good for her.
