Judge Joe Brown

Judge Joe Brown is on the other side of the law for the first time in his illustrious 40-year career as an attorney and judge.

Brown, 68, turned himself in on Thursday to begin serving his 5-day sentence for contempt of court after his motion for an appeal was denied.

Brown was briefly jailed in 2014 after losing his temper in front of a magistrate judge during a child custody hearing.

The former star of TV’s “Judge Joe Brown” defended his actions, saying he would do it again.

The jail-bound judge said in a statement before going behind bars: “I will not apologize for vigorously defending my client and demanding that the court follow the law. What I saw was a miscarriage of justice and I did what needed to be done. I will serve the time and I will continue to stand up and speak out for justice as I have done throughout my 40-year legal career.”

Brown is expected to serve out his sentence in the celebrity wing of the jail. He will cool his heels in a cramped 6×9 cell with a cement toilet and bunk.

His few creature comforts will include toiletries such as a toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash.

When asked for a final comment on his way to jail, Brown said, “Black lives matter.”

Thanks to loyal reader Marcella B. for the tip.

    I love Judge Joe?? He stood up for his client displaying the same angry-accomplished-Black male persona that kept him on television, AND highly rated for several years,,,only to have it used against him. The judge could have over ruled his scentence two days ago, but chose not to…Their way of showing him-we like you on the field (or in the feild?), on the court, we laugh at your disposition when it’s for TV, but don’t you dare bring that OUTSIDE of entertainment? Glad he’s standing his ground though??

    I have no problem with Judge Joe Brown… I read court cases all night and judges disregard the law all day B! Wrong is wrong and folk try to rewrite the dang law…most times they get away with it.. so I applaud JUDGE JOE BROWN for vigorously defending his position…

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I loved his show, way better than Judy. Some folks are just comfortable with the status quo

  • 88

    I see things in racist Memphis haven’t changed.

  • 1/8

    I’m not a fan and I never liked his show. His rulings always seemed to be based on emotions.

  • mzwhang90210

    I used to love Judge Joe Brown’s court show. Especially when he’d go in on dead beat dads.

  • mzwhang90210

  • Str8tUpMenace

  • Miany

  • Miany

  • Vagirl

  • Miany

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I loved his show. There are a whole new crop of them that I just can’t get into.

  • Afiya

  • 88

    It’s a drawing of Pimp C.

    Long live the pimp.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Girl what? Apples and oranges.

  • mzwhang90210

    I laughed so hard at that video when Judge Joe Brown ( off the bench ) was havin fun & flirting with those two (his words) “tenderonis.”
    Showed he was a down to earth guy who liked to have fun.
    Kat Daddyyyyy Joe!!!

  • Tammie Reed

    wow

  • Beverly Johnson

    Don’t drop the soap ni**a

  • Vagirl

    I was just saying you can lock the Judge up for something crazy like this but Bruce killed someone and gets no time…

  • Vagirl

    come on…Jared should be lock up nasty boy…who does that>>>>>he needs life

  • mzwhang90210

    LOL..who would win in a Judge Joe Brown -vs- Judge Greg Mathis fist fight?

  • Sassy24

    I’ll go with a sober brown

  • Sassy24

    I liked his show

  • mzwhang90210

    lol

  • Sassy24

    I saw the reunion it looked that way to me. I like Nikko I think mimi was in on it as much or more than Nikko.

  • mzwhang90210

    Ohhh yeah….okay…about Stevie. Yes that’s what I’d said…it looked like he was deliberatly holding back.
    I agree about MiMi too..she’s not as innocent as she proclaims.
    Thanks for checking.

  • Sassy24

    No problem I wonder if he regrets coming on there.

  • mzwhang90210

    Niko? Probably not. Publicity never hurt.
    And I’m starting to believe that reality tv is really scripted. Because how could Niko’s wife Margo(sp) NOT know that her hubby was filming LHHA? How could she not know that her (estranged) hubby was “involved” with MiMi?
    I mean, even if she doesn’t watch the show..surely folks that know those two..told her.
    But I think Niko is glad he/they did the show. After all, who really knew who they were before this? I didn’t.

  • Sassy24

    Good point, not such thing as bad publicity.

  • Gabriella Greentree

    Judgee shows now are so scripted, at least back in the day it seeeeemed like it MIGHT be reality….

  • AmericanMade

    I’m assuming we’re the minority on that bcz I agree, he’s really rude and very emotional as if some of those cases be hittin home with him, do your job Joe, this ain’t about you! Smh

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    The dramatic pause irks me so. Leading the discussion does too. ~yawn~ I’m over it.

  • pooky

    I’d do his five day’s just to get a break from my kids and husband. #staycation

  • Meme81

    The way he would yell at some ppl put Judge Judy to shame. And they were in court over unpaid cell phone bills and the rent, not double homicide. Now if he took that same fire to real cases, then it would be put to good use.

  • Meme81

    He should run for office. As I keep telling people, if you haven’t been arrested at least once or brought to court, I don’t trust you. That’s like a right of passage. Now he has street cred, lmao.

  • JoyMalone

    Why his mugshot match this emoji tho..?

  • TheRealLee

    Who was the judge that put him away. Exactly. I don’t want to know.

  • product of 79

    Judge Joe is THE REALIST ? a man that stands for nothing will fall for anything. Good job judge for standing ? ?

  • product of 79

    ?

  • 1/8

    I tried to watch his show several times, but he was too annoying.

  • 1/8

    Exactly! As an arbitrator, he is supposed to be fair and unbiased. Instead, he lets his personal feelings cloud his judgment.

  • mzwhang90210

    LOL!!!

  • AmericanMade

    So true!

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    I just read this and HOLLARD!!!!
