JUDGE: And who’s our next contestant, Danny?
(Bailiff hands him papers)
BAILIFF: Young Master Terrance Ramsey.
JUDGE: I understand you’ve reached a plea agreement, Mr. Richardson?
RICHARDSON: Yes, your honor, Mr. Ramsey has agreed to plead guilty to Simple Assault.
JUDGE: Is that correct, Mr. Ramsey, you’re ready to plead guilty?
TERRANCE: Yes, Sir.
JUDGE: To the charge of Simple Assault, how do you plead, Mr. Ramsey?
TERRANCE: Guilty, Your Honor.
JUDGE: And, in your own words, what happened?
TERRANCE: At lunch Reggie said he was going to beat me up after school. He called me a little bitch and said he was going to break my glasses. He scared me and I threw my book at him.
JUDGE: And the state’s recommendation?
RICHARDSON: One year probation and 200 hours of community service.
JUDGE: You caused serious injuries, Mr. Ramsey. Broken eye socket, stitches…
ALICIA: The other child is recovering well, your honor.
JUDGE: Break a nose and your punishment is picking up trash? What’s the lesson there?
ALICIA: Your honor, I would just like to say…
JUDGE: The agreement you have is between you and the Government, Mr. Ramsey. As such, I am not party to that agreement and may impose a harsher sentence. Do you understand that? Mr. Ramsey, I am sentencing you to 9 months detention. You will receive the guidance you need to become a productive citizen and come to understand that actions have consequences. This will be the best thing for you, I promise.
ALICIA: Your Honor, I’m sorry, but… we made an agreement. No jail time…
JUDGE: Okay, next contestant.
