    Sorry but this is ignorant. He did not even know she did it. It had absolutely no effect on the court proceedings and is cruel and unusual punishment in my opinion.

    A slightly more balanced version of the story than KMAN's drivel.

    isn't a heads up a warning?

    30 days sounds about right.

    I agree, sounds like the texter was just trying to pull at heart strings with that. With this information I think she got what she deserved.
