SHAME TO AMERICA!
A judge has lashed out at police after they refused to give an inmate Feminine hygiene products before sending her court without any trousers.
The unnamed prisoner had arrived at Jefferson District Court in Louisville wearing only a pear of knickers below her waist.
Judge Amber Wolf was appalled at the sight of the trouser less woman and she promptly phoned the jail to find out what was happening.
The woman’s lawyer explained that her client has been refused a jumpsuit or any feminine hygiene products during her spell behind bars.

Judge Wolf said: “Why is there a female defendant standing in front of me with no pants on? And she’s been in our jail for three days.
“The jail has refused to give her pants and any feminine hygiene products.”
Deputy Dwayne Clark then told the judge she should have been given a jumpsuit before giving the woman some clothing.

He added: “I gotta look into why she wasn’t.”
The woman, who was in jail for not completing a diversion program on a 2014 shoplifting charge, saw her sentence changed to a $100 fine and used time served as credit.
Judge Wolf added: “I’d like to extend my deepest apologies to you for the way you’ve been treated while you’ve been in my jail, it is not normal.”
