Judge Anna Brown Gives Fashion Advice to Medenbach
Kenneth Medenbach is one of the defendants in the Malheur Protest Trial. He is being charged along with the other six (Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shanna Cox, Neil Wampler, Jeff Banta, and David Fry) with the charge of “Conspiracy to impede federal employees of the U.S.” Mr. Medenbach is also being charged with “Theft of federal property” (a ford pickup truck).
Today in court, Medenbach asked to be excused from court for health issues for the rest of the day and tomorrow for a doctors appointment. Judge Anna J. Brown said he had to waive his right to be present in court for today and tomorrow (September 9th) and made sure he understood that his attorney would be speaking on his behalf. Kenneth replayed with “This (the court case) can not kill me, these issues can kill me” so he agreed to wave his right to be present for the two days and left court, but he will be back for court on Tuesday the 13th of September.
Yesterday the 7th Mr. Medenbach wore a shirt about the Bill of Rights in the court room. Today (8th) Judge Anna J. Brown asked Kenneth’s attorney if his client had his offensive shirt issue taken care of.
Anna J. Brown said in a message “I’ve already made clear on the record that “jury-nullification” argument is contrary to law and may not be presented to jurors.”
The back of Kenneth’s shirt quotes saying “The pages of history shine on instances of the jury’s exercise of its prerogative to disregard instructions of the judge…”
The words “U.S Constitution” is on one shirtsleeve and the words “Bill of Rights” on the other.
She told him “Do not wear this shirt again.”
Seems to me she is almost afraid of jury-nullification and the jurors knowing about it.
