Woman sent to jail for wearing shorts to court

August 22, 2008

Lancaster, KY — The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Garrard District Court Judge Janet Booth reminded 28-year-old Kirstie Arnold of Lancaster on Monday that she had been warned about inappropriate attire in two previous court appearances and fined $50 the last time.

Arnold said she forgot.

Booth didn’t buy it and ordered Arnold put in jail for three days for “disregard and disrespect for court proceedings.”

The Herald-Leader reported Arnold declined an interview Thursday and the judge could not be reached for comment.

Before being taken to jail, Arnold told Booth she wouldn’t wear shorts to court next time.
