Nearly everyone remembers the infamous “Judge Joe Brown” whose hit television court show was cancelled last year. His most famous quote was “protecting womanhood and promoting manhood.” According to a report by Fox 2 Now on March 24, 2014, “Judge Joe Brown” has been dealt some of his own no nonsense medicine and been sentenced to jail for contempt of court.
Joseph Brown, AKA Judge Joe, spent 15 years on television as one of the toughest judges around, telling the people in his court room just how it was. His harsh gruff style of handing out the law and advice kept the audience entertained, both on and off camera, though the litigants in the cases were not usually too happy with him.
Brown obviously met his match when he entered a courthouse in Tennessee to defend a client on in a child support case. When court clerks couldn’t find any records, “Judge Joe Brown” apparently turned on his sharp tongued TV personality and became verbally abusive. If you have ever watched the show, you know that Brown can be very abrupt with his opinions of people.
Brown was warned to calm down and when that apparently didn’t work he was sentenced to two days in jail for contempt of court. That didn’t sit well with Brown and he must have apparently let it show, as, according to the news report, he was given an extra day “to think about his behavior.”
The irony of it all is that “Judge Joe Brown” is actually running for Shelby County District Attorney while he sits in jail with bail being denied. His actions probably won’t win him over as a popular candidate.
