Judge Joe Brown Held in Contempt of Court
Judge Joe Brown, after 15 years of his own show, was acting as a lawyer yesterday, representing a client who was accused of not paying child support.
The trial was held in Juvenile Court in Shelby County, Tennessee. Presiding was chief Magistrate Judge Dan Michael, who said Brown caused a spectacle in court by yelling and repeatedly challenging the juvenile court magistrate’s authority.
Brown was charged with five counts of contempt of court and sentenced to five days in jail. He was released just hours later.
The television show, “Judge Joe Brown” ran in syndication from 1998-2013. It is not yet know whether Judge Joe Brown has a lawyer. Maybe he’ll call Brown and Croupin.
