A judge in Hawaii ordered a man to one of the oddest sentencings I’ve ever heard of.
The man was ordered to write 144 “nice things” to his ex-girlfriend after violating a restraining order.
“For every nasty thing you said about her, you’re going to say a nice thing. No repeating words,” said Judge Rhonda Loo to Daren Young of Kahului, Hawaii.
The sentencing was based off the fact that Young had called and texted his ex-girlfriend 144 times within 3 hours, and was then arrested and jailed for 157 days.
Young was given two years probation, community service, and a couple of thousands in fines.
According to the Huffington Post, Judge slapped Young with a cold dose of reality.
“It’s so childish to think a grown man can be so thumb-happy. I hope you don’t have a phone anymore and, if you do, I hope you don’t have her number anymore.”
Judge Loo didn’t hold back, as she continued,
“I don’t know whether I should cut off your fingers or take away your phone to get you to stop texting,” said Loo, “You probably shouldn’t get a phone, period. I hope she changed her number.”
This is certainly not the first time we’ve seen such odd behavior ordered in the court.
Cleveland, Ohio native Shena Hardin was forced to hold an “idiot” sign in 2012, when she was arrested for driving on the sidewalk.
Two 19 year olds were ordered to walk around with an “I’m sorry” sign and a donkey.
A girl’s hair was even chopped off on the courtroom floor by her mother.
What do you think about this sentence? You think the judge was wildin’ out or that it was a completely fair sentence?
