Amanda Kosal was on trial for killing a father of five during a drunk driving accident — but her family wasn't exactly remorseful. After laughing at the victim's relatives in court, Judge Qiana Lillard of Detroit held Donna Kosal, Amanda's mom, in contempt and sentenced her to 93 days in jail for the chuckles alone.
Donna was yucking it up alongside another unnamed man who was also ejected from the proceedings. “It's time for him to go,” said the judge as he was removed. “And I don't know who he is, but whoever can sit here at a tragic moment like this and laugh and smile when somebody has lost a family member... In the entire time that [the victim's family member] was speaking, that clown - and that's what I am going to call him, a clown - was sitting there smiling and laughing."
“These people are here grieving, saddened because a senseless act took away their loved one and you're sitting here acting like it's a joke?” Judge Lillard continued. “Anybody else want to go? Try it.”
Donna tried chastising Lilard for her mouth, to which Lilard retorted: “Well, your mouth just got you 93 days.”
She. Had. Had. It!
Video of the scene has since gone viral. It has been shared over 16,000 times.
As Black History Month comes to a close, let's all light a candle for Judge Lilard, our new Patron Saint of Not Puttin' Up With Your Bullsh*t.
