Meet Austin Boone. The 20-year-old appeared in court for speeding and possession of drug paraphernalia. His attorney negotiated a plea agreement that Austin couldn’t remember. Judge Stephanie Pearce Burke helped him figure out what would work best for him.
Then the judge asked Austin to pull up his sagging pants. He wouldn’t comply. In fact, he removed his pants. Now Austin is in jail for seven days.
If Austin’s parents aren’t mortified, then they ought to be in jail for seven days, too.
