Talk about being held in contempt:
… Seems that during a guilty plea hearing in the courtroom of Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit Court Chief Judge John Allen, the defense attorney expressed concern that having a criminal record might prevent his client from attending the University of Iowa, where he was on football scholarship.
To which Judge Allen replied, “He can always go to Auburn.”
The courtroom erupted into raucous laughter — where were all the Auburn fans? — and then a chuckling Allen ordered his last comment to be struck from the record.
His Honor is a Florida grad, by the way.
