District Court Judge gets SLAMMED by Circuit Court

Judge Post held a young lawyer in contempt because the lawyer repeatedly asserted his client’s 5th Amendment privilege to remain silent (when Judge Post asked his client whether he would test positive for drugs.)

All the lawyer did was state that his client would not answer the question, because it would incriminate him. Judge Post did not like this and proceeded to hold the lawyer in contempt, had him arrested, and sent to jail!

The Circuit Court issued an opinion a couple of days ago, reversing the contempt charge.

*Please note that the Circuit Court Judge is also Judge Post – but they are not related.
