They say clothes don't make a man, but having a dirty word on a T-shirt will land you a 48-hour stay in jail.
19-year old Jennifer LaPenta was arrested and sentenced to 48 hours in jail for wearing a T-shirt into court (as a spectator) that read: “I own the p**sy, so I make the rules.”
The Illinois teen was at the gym when a friend asked for a ride to the courthouse. When LaPenta — dressed in the t-shirt and sweatpants — escorted her friend in the courthouse, Associate Judge Helen Rozenburg had officers cuff her. Judge Rozenberg had LaPenta on contempt, saying the t-shirt slogan was inappropriate for court.
LaPenta begged to differ. She told a local paper that the ordeal was humiliating. "They should be out looking for people who are breaking the law — not arresting someone wearing a T-shirt." LaPenta’s lawyer said she may bring a civil suit but first will have a sit down with Judge Rozenburg.
Was the teen's shirt offensive as a visitor to the courts or cranky judge didn't eat breakfast?
