Don’t Mess with Texas . . . Judges

U.S. District Judge David Hittner gave one college student, Kelsey Gloston a civics lesson that she will not soon forget.

Gloston, a pre-nursing student, apparently hung up on the courthouse clerks who contacted her regarding jury duty. Big mistake.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Judge Hittner ordered federal marshals to “haul her in chains from school to court to explain why she shirked jury duty.”  You can read the Chronicle’s full story here.

If you are appearing before Judge Hittner anytime soon, y’all better be on your best behavior.
