“Hat Wearers” Found Guilty of Disorderly Conduct
Jesse, recently arrested in the Milford courtroom for refusing to remove his hat, and Charlie, arrested for asking about the hat rule in the courtroom lobby, were both found guilty on Wednesday of disorderly conduct. However, no punishment was required because they were both sentenced to “time served”, which would be the 4 hours they were held on the day they were arrested.
Jesse, apparently not wishing further conflict with courtroom dress codes, wore a suit to trial and followed the court’s desired procedure throughout. Charlie, while following procedure, also went with questions to ask of the court and officers.Visit the Shire Society Forum.
