100 days for cussing out the judge

The Kingsport paper has this story about a defendant in General Sessions court who earned extra jail time by cursing the judge, giving the finger to the judge, threatening the judge, and so on. Evidently, the judge summarily sentenced the defendant ten times to ten days, spinning out the numbers in the manner of auctioneer, or so claimed the author of the newspaper story.
