Does that really call for 30 days? Was he really trying to disrespect the judge? It didn't look like it to me. And while he wasn't in a suit it's not like he was in sweats either. If he's in jail for more than a week it'll be a mistake. Say what you want about Chad but I bet there's alot of people that deserve his spot in jail more than he does for slapping his lawyers butt.
My whole problem is that disrespect shouldn't be punishable by law, except for in the cases where you are warned you will be held in contempt and then continue. That clearly didn't happen here. He didn't say or do anything directed toward the judge.
