Casey Anthony: Matthew Bartlett Jailed for “Flipping the Bird”

Matthew Bartlett, a 28-year-old spectator at the murder trial of Casey Anthony, has been found in contempt of court for giving the middle finger to a prosecutor and will spend 6 days in jail.

Matthew Bartlett, a server at TGI Friday’s, was called out by the judge after the defense rested and jurors and attorneys had left the courtroom.

Perry asked the noticeably shaken Bartlett why he flipped off Jeff Ashton, a state prosecutor in Anthony’s murder trial, while court was in session. Bartlett couldn’t give a good reason.

Perry showed Barlett a picture of someone giving the finger in court, and Bartlett sheepishly acknowledged it was him.

    Yeah, I saw this go down “Live”, and it left me with one Thought…. Judge Perry sends-out a clear and firm general Message that when someone knowingly and deliberately breaks the Law or the Rules, regardless of the “Seriousness” of that Law or Rule, they should be held Accountable, no Ifs-Ands-or-Buts, no “Second Chance”. The Perpitrator must know that it was NOT “Okay”, no matter HOW “Sorry” they are, and that they will be PUNNISHED— not merely given a “Slap on the Wrist”. Judge Perry reminds us that it’s the way it SHOULD be, whether the Offense is made in a Courtroom or anywhere else. Made me wish that all this Country’s “Sex Offenders” and other Dangerous Criminals to Society who are left go and get off time after time, could be brought in front of HIM, the FIRST time.
