ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- You might want to bite your tongue before telling a judge to kiss the body part you sit on. The South Carolina Court of Appeals has upheld a judge's contempt ruling against a St. Matthews woman who signed a court document with just such a message for the judge.
Judith Law was ordered to serve an extra 90 days. She appealed the contempt order, saying she didn't sign the document in the judge's presence. But the appeals court said that doesn't matter. In addition to the 90-day contempt sentence, the judge ordered the woman to serve the remainder of a five-year suspended sentence for grand larceny and burglary.
