Raymond became upset when a 61-year-old woman parked diagonally, taking up two spots. Words were exchanged and a quarrel ensued. Raymond was convicted of grabbing the woman's left middle finger for several seconds as the woman made obscene gestures.Judge "Hang 'em High" McKillip was in true form as he knocked this local celebrity down to size in his court room and showed that no one would receive preferential treatment as long as he sat on the bench in Du Page County:
"All of us have had a bad day, and Ms. Raymond had a bad day"Give her hell, McKillip!
How did Ms. Raymond respond to Judge McKillip's firm-handed treatment?
"I am truly sorry that my actions led to this unfortunate incident," Raymond told McKillip tearfully. "I'm embarrassed."That's right! He made her cry. So in addition to 6 months of conditional discharge and ordered to pay a $300 fine, Judge "Hang 'em High" McKillip made Ms. Raymond cry in public.
You 'da man!
