Contempt of Court

Murfreesboro Criminal Defense Lawyer

When the court issues an order, it has the authority to compel defendants to obey that order through a contempt action. In essence, the judge can command defendants to report to court if they have disobeyed the terms of a court order. If a defendant is found guilty of contempt of court, they will be sentenced up to 10 days per violation, which can be served consecutively for up to 180 days. In other words, you could be facing a six-month jail sentence for disobeying the judge.

If you’ve been told to report to court for a contempt hearing, you need a seasoned litigator on your side. Attorney James M. Judkins has tried numerous misdemeanors and felonies over the last decade, helping his clients get their charges dismissed at a pre-trial hearing.
