Judge Amber Wolf: Criticizes Correctional System After Prisoner Appears in Court with No Pants

This blog has published multiple stories of failures in the legal system…I  am happy to report a story of an honest judge, who applies the law with fairness and compassion. 

Fairness is what justice really is.” ~ Justice Potter Stewart, Associate Justice of U.S. Supreme Court (1915-1985)

(Kentucky, August 2016) Judge Amber Wolf, Jefferson County District Court, condemns jail administrators for inhumane treatment of a prisoner, who appeared in court wearing just a long shirt with no pants on underneath. The woman had been detained for 3 days and her requests for a jumpsuit and hygiene items were denied.

Judge Wolf responds to the situation: “Excuse me? This is outrageous. Is this for real?

Judge Wolf also criticizes the harsh penalty inflicted on the defendant, a first time offender charged with shoplifting, and apologizes for the way she has been treated.

About Emily Court

It takes "Just Us" To Fight Injustice in Family Court. I blog to raise awareness about problems existing in the family court system, and use my own story as a personal example of how the systemic failures in family court, and the Guardian ad Litem Program, affect families, in an effort to encourage needed reform. Written by a survivor of domestic violence and homelessness working to create a better life for her children, in a stable home free of violence. In her efforts to rebuild her life, she has not only encountered harassment and intimidation from her alleged abuser but faced systematic failures in family court that have empowered her alleged abuser and put her children at risk. She has spent over a decade trapped in family court until her children finally aged out of the system. Through writing and blogging, FCI is working to raise awareness about domestic violence, and the urgent need for family court reform. She is currently working on a memoir titled "'Til Prayers Are Answered".
