Tough In The Streets, Weak In The Courthouse: Was Robert Howse’ Sentencing Fair?

 Tough In The Streets, Weak In The Courthouse: Was Robert Howse’ Sentencing Fair?

This sentencing was over a year ago but OnSite editors wanted to share it with you all as it was recently on our timeline.

The court hearing for Robert Howse last year ended in chaos when a judge sentenced him to 43 years in prison for robbing former NFL wide receiver and Super Bowl champion Joe Jurevicius.

Howse screamed to the judge that the sentencing was “bulls**t,” while members of his family shouted obscenities as sheriff deputies wrestled the 24-year-old out of the courtroom. One woman called Judge Nancy McDonnell a “sick b**ch” and stormed out of the courtroom.

The outburst, which was caught on video and has since gone viral, brings up the conversation on how shocked or surprised someone should be with the punishment they receive for crimes they commit. One moment, a man can be on top of the world feeling invincible and handling his business. Then the next, he’s in a courtroom crying out for his freedom.

But the real question is: do you think people think about the consequences of their actions beforehand? Be it in the courtroom or in the streets?
