A Kentucky judge was outraged when she hear from a defendant’s lawyer that the inmate had been denied pants and feminine hygiene products while serving three days in the jail. During the court hearing judge Amber Wolf pauses and immediately calls the jail,
Excuse me? This is outrageous. Is this for real?” The Louisville judge said when the inmate’s lawyer revealed her situation.
Judge Wolf then telephoned the jail and said: “I’m wondering if there’s anyone […] who can come to my courtroom and tell me why there is a female defendant standing in front of me with no pants on?”
The judge was furious for the way the woman was treated, she also questioned was the woman was given a 75 day sentence for a first-time shoplifting offence, and apologised to her.
