A Florida woman called the police in April 2015 — the father of her child choked her and threatened her with a knife.
The man was arrested and put on trial. Suffering from anxiety, the domestic violence victim failed to show up to testify. Florida Judge Jerri Collins berated the woman, charged her with contempt of court, and threw her in jail for three days — even though the victim pleaded that she had a 1-year-old child to care for.
On Wednesday, Judge Collins was publicly reprimanded — on live TV — for her “intolerable” behavior by the Florida Supreme Court.
This should happen more often.
