When I arrived at the Harris County Criminal Justice Center Thursday there metal detector area was buzzing.
Not because of metal objects but because people were whispering about a woman who’d just walked in saying she was headed to court.
There is nothing unusual about that but how the woman was dressed was the topic of discussion.
I don’t really need to describe it because you see the picture above.
Some even asked if she was actually going to court like that.
The issue of courtroom attire brings up an issue I addressed in a special report a few years back.
That’s how you should dress when you attend court.
In that report Judge Mike Fields says appearance plays an important role in your appearance before the bench.
He says it shows you’re showing respect for the judge and yourself.
Some even say if you make that appearance in court properly or professionally dressed then it could make a difference whether you’re given a second chance or sent to the slammer.
So, take my advice and don’t show up in court with daisy duke shorts on!
