    Judge Cracks Down on Saggy Pants

    Judge Cracks Down Again on Saggy Pants

    LORAIN– Lorain Municipal Court Judge Mark Mihok tells it how it is. But the one thing Judge Mihok won’t tolerate in his courtroom is saggy pants.

    “No one expects people to wear a suit and a tie to court. We understand that. But at least wear something that covers up,” said Mihok.

    It was saggy pants that got Juan Cordova, 19, in trouble Wednesday when he sat in Judge Mihok’s courtroom to support a friend.

    Friday, Cordova stood before the judge on contempt of court charges, wearing a very different pair of pants.

    “Pull your pants up. Take off your hat. These things are told to them before they enter the courtroom. If they are still sagging severely, then I don’t feel it’s my job to have to warn them. I just have them sit in jail and teach them a lesson that way,” said Mihok.

    And this isn’t the first time Judge Mihok has charged a man with contempt of court for wearing low-riding bottoms.

    In fact, he’s done it four times since July.

    “When this activity is going on, I know that people do not feel safe. They feel intimidated. People in the courtroom have to be there. They have no choice. They are either a party to a case or subpoenaed as a witness. So, I’m just not going to put up with people who can’t put their pants on,” said Mihok.

    Judge Mihok says he’s seen a lot of changes in his 11 years behind the bench. But he says his policy on pants remains a firm decision.

    “If the low pants situation is a fad, I hope it ends soon. I hope some other fad takes its place,” said Mihok.

    Cordova pleaded not guilty. He faces a hearing with another judge in December.

    As much as I don't agree with the structured, power hierarchy that is both the US and Canadian legal systems, as a restorative justice practitioner, I find myself co-defending clients and testifying regularly here and sometimes in the state of Maine.

    I always tell my clients "at least play the game", dress nice and show respect. I had one guy go in in a beater, tattos showing, unshaven, wearing lugz boots. I asked for a postponement and basically sent the stupid prick home to get cleaned up.

    Just for fun this morning after seeing this story on the news, I tried to walk around the house with my pants just below my ass cheeks. Couldn't take five steps before they started falling down. I could only take it for about ten minutes.

    My theory with this fashion statement is the same as my theory on people that don't use their turn signals... it takes more effort and thought to not do it properly.

    I see that look every day as I'm waiting for the bus. Looks so darn uncomfortable and makes you look like a slob IMO. I can't imagine seeing somebody in a courtroom like that. Good grief.

    I was a teen in the 70s everything was skin tight then. Check out basketball unies back then.

    I know a cop who LOVES the saggy pants fashion statement

    he finds the punks who have to hang onto their pants while running (and don't forget the unlaced shoelaces on the sneakers) give him just the leveling of the playing field he needs

    these punks literally run out of their shoes and trip over their own damn pants while trying to elude the police

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    BOSTON – A new PSA released by the Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts is encouraging young men to pull up their pants.

    "So you think you look pretty good wearing your pants like that don't you? Underwear exposed, hip-hop style" asks an officer in the video. "Well there's something you may not know."

    The video, posted on YouTube on Tuesday, goes on to say that anyone caught wearing their pants low could face fines up to $300 and up to three years in prison as part of Massachusetts' open and gross lewd and lascivious behavior law.

    "Pull up your pants. Respect yourself," the officer says.

    It was not immediately known if anyone had ever been charged for wearing their pants too low in the state.

    All it will take to make them pull up their pants is having it be a fad in the senior community.

    Shit it might make sense with the change out of bed pans and depends.

    my god, it's one thing to have morons dressing like that (we got some of our own), but to need to have a cop do a psa and pass a law to put people in jail for years for dressing like an idiot?
