    Chad Johnson is to appear at a hearing his attorney requested. Attorney is requesting that Chad Johnson not have to serve the 30 days levied against him last week for violation of probation.
    ---he had failed to report to his probation officer.
    ---prosecuting attorney and Johnson's attorney had come to a plea agreement
    ---appeared the judge was going to accept the plea agreement.
    ---Chad Johnson's courtroom conduct was deemed by the judge to be disrespectful of the court and demonstrated a lack of seriousness, etc regarding his probation, the court, etc(slovenly attire, buttslapping his attorney triggering a courtroom outburst, and then arguing with the judge)
    ----Judge sentenced Chad Johnson to 30 days in jail for the VOP.

    -------

    what say you to the following
    ---what do you think the judge's decision today should be
    ---what do you think the judgement will be
    ---what do you think will occur of the following
    -----Chad Johnson wearing suit and tie
    -----another butt slap for his attorney

    -------

    If you wear the judge what would you do during the hearing to determine whether to release chad Johnson early?

    If I were the judge I would ask Chad Johnson the following question
    -----You chose not to obey conditions of your first probation. Why should the court believe that you are suitable for probation?

    Old, I don't usally agree with you on most, but have to say I whole heartedly think he should serve the 30 days and move on. Wouldn't waste the time to even listen

    Well, she had decided to let him go and then got all twisted up over the "celebration." Nothing changed except that she perceived him as not being appropriately visually subservient to her or the state or some combination thereof, evidently. Pretty goofy display of peacock feathers if you ask me.

    And as far as celebrations go, that one was almost non-existent (especially for Chad Johnson.) I just hope this judge doesn't react that way all the time as I see courtrooms erupt into unabashed emotional outbursts regularly. I sure hope a murderer doesn't get 180'd out of jail because the victim's family smiles or back slaps their lawyer.

    Yeah, if he had signed his lawyer's suit with a Sharpie, that would have been a little too much.

    I was thinking about fake-proposing to the bailiff, maybe. But yeah, a Sharpie would flip the script too.
