A criminal’s mother wound up in jail herself after a judge found her laughing and smiling and acting wildly out of line in a Michigan courtroom.
Amanda Kosal, 25, was being sentenced for a deadly drunk-driving crash — a crash that killed Jerome Zirker, 31, and severely injured his fiancée Brittany Johnson. Kosal admitted she was drunk and pleaded guilty, according to Click On Detroit. She cried in court as the victim’s family read a heartbreaking impact statement.
Meanwhile, the perpetrator’s mom Donna laughed and smiled with her boyfriend — interrupting the victim statement about Zirker, who was a father of five. Wayne County Judge Qiana Lillard immediately shut down the “disruptive and disrespectful behavior.” Her reaction has gone viral, viewed more than 23 million times in this video.
She showed Donna and her “clown” boyfriend the door, sentencing the mom to 93 days in jail, reports the New York Post. After an apology and one night in jail, Lillard generously and graciously cut her sentence by 92 days.
