Las Vegas District Court Judge Mary Kay Holthus was violently attacked by 30-year-old criminal defendant Deobra Delone Redden on Wednesday for sentencing him to jail.

From The Daily Mail, "Las Vegas judge is attacked by freshly-convicted criminal who jumped over her bench to rain punches on her after she sentenced him to jail":
Video footage shows the wild moment Redden leaped out from where he was standing and hopped into the judge's bench to tackle her.

As he throws himself at the shocked judge, Redden is heard saying 'nah f*** that b*tch.'

The marshal along with the judge attempt to dodge the attack, but Redden threw himself on top of both of them and began to brutally beat-up Holthus.

[...] Redden was ironically being sentenced for aggravated battery with substantial bodily harm just before he launched his attack.
"[O]fficials said Holthus was not hospitalized after the attack," the AP reports. "The courtroom marshal was injured as he came to the judge's aid and was hospitalized for treatment of a bleeding gash on his forehead and a dislocated shoulder, according to court officials and witnesses."

From the AP:
"It happened so fast it was hard to know what to do," said Richard Scow, the chief county district attorney who prosecuted Redden on a case that stemmed from an arrest last year on allegations that Redden attacked a person with a baseball bat.

Records showed that Redden, a Las Vegas resident, was evaluated and found mentally competent to stand trial before pleading guilty in November to a reduced charge of attempted battery causing substantial bodily harm. He previously served prison time in Nevada on a domestic battery conviction, state records show.

Redden was not in custody when he arrived at court Wednesday, and wore a white shirt and dark pants as he stood next to Almase asking the judge for leniency. He described himself as "not a rebellious person."

"I feel like I shouldn't be sent to prison," Redden said, "but if its appropriate for you then you have to do what you have to do."

As the judge made it clear she intended to put him behind bars, and the court marshal moved to handcuff him, Redden yelled expletives and charged forward amid screams from people who had been sitting with Redden in the courtroom audience.
Perhaps they should just let him go again, you know, because of "systemic racism" and all that?!
