The judge threw Jennifer LaPenta in prision for contempt of court. She was attending a hearing in a friend’s case. Bros, was justice served or what? Full news story after the jump.
Here’s the story, via the Chicago Sun-Times:
A Round Lake Park woman was held in contempt and jailed because a judge found a message on her T-shirt offensive.
Associate Judge Helen Rozenberg held Jennifer LaPenta, who was attending a hearing in a friend’s case, in contempt of court for wearing a T-shirt that read: “I have the p—-, so I make the rules.”
The judge asked LaPenta, 19, if she thought her shirt was appropriate.
LaPenta said she told the judge that it would have been inappropriate if she had been the defendant.
“They should be out looking for people who are breaking the law, not arresting someone wearing a T-shirt,” said LaPenta, 19. She was released from Lake County Jail on Tuesday.
LaPenta said she had been at a gym Monday when her friend asked her for a ride to the courthouse. She was wearing sweat pants and the T-shirt when she was handcuffed and jailed.
Rozenberg said she could not comment on the case.
