Kentucky Man Gets Jail Time For Saying This One Word (Video)

Adam Satterly called Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Olu Stevens the n-word on Jan. 4 after Stevens revoked Satterly's bond in a Louisville, Kentucky, courtroom (video below).

Satterly was in court for drug charges when Stevens made his ruling. While Satterly was walking out of the courtroom, he could be heard yelling the racial slur, notes WDRB.

Stevens, who is African-American, had Satterly brought back into the courtroom and asked him, "Is there something that you wish to say to me?"

Satterly told the judge that he was talking to his brother, but Stevens didn't buy it.

"You don't speak those words in here," Stevens told Satterly. "And that word particularly, you don't use that word. I'm going to give you 60 days for having used that word. I'm going to hold you in contempt right now for having done it in this courtroom. It's disrespectful. Don't ever do it again."

Stevens removed himself from the bench temporarily on Dec. 21, 2015, after he was scolded by Kentucky Chief Justice John Minton and investigated by the Judicial Conduct Commission for reportedly writing Facebook postings that criticized the Commonwealth's Attorney (lead prosecutor) Tom Wine for allegedly wanting "all-white" juries, WDRB reported in a separate article.
