Letter: Some needed advice for court appearance
To the editor:
You are in the judge’s courtroom, not your own. Show the court some respect by appearing to act responsible, by reducing the face hardware, answering questions with a, “Yes, Judge.” “No, Judge,” instead of a “Yep” or “Nope.”
Flip-flops. Really? Do you think the judge will be impressed by your tattoos? Shredded jeans and tube-tops might have been the attire you wore when you got arrested, but that should have ended there.
How about swinging the chair back and forth?
And my favorite is when someone doesn’t show up as scheduled, known as an FTA (failure to appear). Perhaps the offender thinks the judge’s order will simply disappear, but in reality it will chase them forever.
Just a little constructive criticism to help you with your future, if you give it a half a chance.
