According to a Facebook post, BLACK WOMAN ATTORNEY CHOKED OUT IN COURT THIS MORNING FOR NO REASON!!!!!!! NO REASON!!!
She was assaulted by Court Officer, in Judge Johnson's court! Judge Johnson allowed this to happen!!!!
Now they’re trying to arrest and charge her in order to justify what they did to her.
The Public Defenders office needs to come out swinging and defend and protect the BLACK WOMAN!!
The following statement was released by MCSO:
On November 5, 2021 at approximately 10:15 a.m, while court was in session, an Assistant Public Defender attempted to gain entry into a restricted area of Rochester City Court but was temporarily denied access due to safety concerns with a disruptive inmate in the restricted area. The Assistant Public Defender was told multiple times by the judge presiding over the courtroom and a deputy that she was not allowed to enter. The Assistant Public Defender allegedly became disruptive in court and was asked by both the judge and deputies to leave the courtroom. The Assistant Public Defender continued to be disruptive, and while being escorted by a deputy from the courtroom, an altercation ensued between the Assistant Public Defender and MCSO deputies. Three MCSO deputies received minor injuries and were treated by medical professionals. The Assistant Public Defender complained of pain to the wrist, was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for evaluation, and it was determined there are no signs of a fracture. MCSO is conducting a criminal investigation into this incident.
