Worst (aka dumbest) Things To Do In Court

A couple of things you’d never think lawyers might want to consider debriefing their clients on before facing a judge in charge of throwing the book at them. A Texas judge recently said to 17-year-old defendant Corey Webb,

“I don’t know how you were raised, but peeing in a trash can in a state district courtroom is inappropriate behavior. This is the second conversation we’ve had. There won’t be a third.”

If I see some fool walk into a room not labeled restroom, I am liable to throw a book at them myself. Or even a shoe. Whichever gets in and out of my hand first.

Secondly, maybe I’m the only one under the impression that arriving for court sloshed can’t be the brightest thing in the world to do. Especially when the hearing is regarding your (count em’ SIXTH!!) DUI case. I’m all for faking it till you make it, so I’d say this could be a great opportunity to fake the fact that you are not a functioning alcoholic. Sandra Uher of Elgin, Illinois clearly has not learned that the first step to recovery is admitting. Admitting you are a dumb-ASS.
