Tsk, Tsk Judge throws drunk driverís mom in jail for laughing at victimís family in court

Judge Qiana Lillardís no-nonsense approach is getting attention far beyond her Michigan courtroom. The Wayne County Circuit Court judge kicked two people out of the room for laughing during a deadly DUI sentencing on Friday.

Wow, that lady is a piece or work. I would bet she's going to have a whole different attitude after 93 days in the Wayne county jail though.

She did apologize and it was reduced to 1 day.

It struck me that she was jailed as much because she muttered under her breath at the judge as anything (the other person laughing wasn't jailed). I bet she could've been nailed for contempt of court if the judge had asked her to repeat that, louder.

This judge sounds like a thoughtful person.

Yes, in the OP article there is a hot link (on "reportedly) to an article with a video of the next day. The judge very calmly and thoughtfully gives her a a good dressing down and then orders her released.

Judge Qiana Lillardís no-nonsense attitude behind the bench gained national attention last week after the Wayne County Circuit Court judge kicked two people out of her courtroom for laughing during a deadly DUI sentencing on Friday.
