    Unfortunately, I once had to experience this nightmare as well.  My judge ,Shawna Reagin 176th district court, would admonish the first time then it's hello harris county jail for three days on the second infraction.  One time that I went to court there was a guy who was turning himself in on 25yr sentence.  The judge had allowed for him to get is family affairs in order before serving out his sentence.  The guy happened to show up less than 5 minutes late and the judge threatened to DOUBLE his sentence to 50 yrs.  I was completely taken aback.  Twenty five extra years for less then five minutes is totally outrageous.  I woudn't had believed it if I had not have seen this type of display by this judge with my own two eyes. I was late myself once and lets just say I made sure that would never happen again even if I had to sleep at the damn courthouse.  My judge was a straight up bully but that's Harris County.  She recently just lost so she is no longer serving but get this she was the DEMOCRAT.
