Wastebin Abuse

By on September 13, 2011 in Janitorial, Legal Filing


A defendant in Texas has poured scorn on the justice system by urinating into a courtroom wastebin.

Seventeen-year-old Corey Darnell Webb, standing trial for shooting a police officer during an attempted escape from a youth detention centre, relieved himself shortly after the jury had left the courtroom in Tyler, Texas.

The action left Judge Kerry Russell and a police officer looking on perplexed.

The judge had already reprimanded Webb for mumbling loudly during proceedings and for asking the judge if he could fire his lawyer.
