Trial delayed due to defendant's T-shirt


UPI News Service, 07/27/2010 

A Cincinnati judge delayed a misdemeanor criminal damage trial because he found the defendant's "Chucky" T-shirt inappropriate for court.

Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Bernie Bouchard told William Morse, 28, at what was scheduled to be his non-jury trial Monday that his T-shirt featuring the killer doll from the "Child's Play" films -- bearing the tag line "Say goodbye to the killer" -- was not appropriate court attire, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Tuesday.

Morse told the judge he had just woken up prior to the 11 a.m. court appearance. The judge countered Morse could have spent "5 minutes" picking out a more appropriate wardrobe.

The trial was delayed and Bouchard told Morse he would be held in contempt of court if he was not properly dressed for the occasion.
