Jail is not a game. Sometimes in life people make decisions without thinking of the long term consequences. So many criminals think they are invincible, but judge Christina Argyres humbled a defendant in the courtroom this week.
According to transcripts, she said:
“Do you know what would happen…to a young a dumb person in prison? Do you have any idea what would happen to you? You would probably be raped every day, for one. And I hate to sound like that, you know – rude, but that’s exactly what would happen to you.”
“Again, he’s going to be somebody’s – I hate to use the word ‘bitch,’ but that’s exactly what he’s going to be…so I am willing to put him on probation.”
While that is the worst public shaming I have seen a judge deliver in quite sometime, she did spare him from being behind bars. Hopefully he takes advantage of this opportunity and gets his life together.
