Inebriated Thief Ordered To Write Essay: How A Lady Should Behave

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A North Carolina judge says a woman convicted of resisting a public officer and being intoxicated and disruptive must write an essay on being a lady.

Toni Marie King, 21, of Warrenton, pleaded guilty June 28 in Halifax County District Court to charges of resisting a public officer and being intoxicated and disruptive in exchange for prosecutors dropping charges of assaulting a government official, larceny and possession of stolen goods, The Daily Herald, Roanoke Rapids, N.C., reported ."


I`m not a big fan of creative sentencing; I`m of the opinion that nothing makes the point more eloquently than a stretch behind bars.

Maybe some of the material she reads will sink in, and the next time she`s arrested she will at least refrain from screaming obscenities at the officer.

King was sentenced to 12 months supervised probation, and a substance abuse and alcohol assessment.
