Person Gets A Year In Jail For Using the "F" Word

What would you say if you were sentenced to 26 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release then violated that release and received an additional 36 months in prison? Considering you received the sentence because you were convicted of second degree murder, you may not be the most polite person. Let me guess, you wouldn't say thank you?

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit has affirmed the criminal contempt conviction of an unnamed defendant who uttered the “F” word during his sentencing hearing in the Washington, D.C. District Court.
It all started in March of 2009 when the defendant plead guilty to second degree murder in the District of Columbia Superior Court. He was sentenced to 26 years in prison. Then in August 2000, the defendant pleaded guilty to charges of cocaine possession and was sentenced to time served plus five years of supervised release.
It was that supervised release thing that he hadn't quite gotten the hang of. So he violated it. Which means he had a hearing. At that hearing he was sentenced to thirty-six more months’ imprisonment to run consecutively to his sentence for the murder conviction.

He repeatedly interrupted the district judge and finally exclaimed “Fuck y’all.”  The judge was pissed an added another year to his conviction.

Kinda reminds me of the famous "The Breakfast Club" scene where the teacher keeps adding days to his detention. Yes I am black and yes I have seen "The Breakfast Club". Get with it.
