(Newser) – A white man in Louisville, Ky., will spent time in jail for using a racial slur in a courtroom hallway, seconds after an interaction with a black judge. Adam Satterly could be heard yelling "punk ass n*****" immediately after Judge Olu Stevens revoked his bond on drug charges Monday. Stevens promptly held Satterly in contempt of court "for having used that word," and handed him 60 days in jail, per WDRB. Stevens later reduced the sentence to one day after Satterly apologized, reports the Courier-Journal. The incident occurred on Stevens' first day back on the bench after he was chided for complaining on social media that a prosecutor wanted "all-white juries." (Read more Kentucky stories.)
