cheatham county - A 33-year-old man from the US state of Tennessee has got a $ 14 million bailout (nearly 12.5 million euros) because he had scourged the judge. Charles Nichols, suspected of having a minor sexually harassed, was initially awarded a $ 50,000 guarantor, but he did not agree.
At this, Charles decided to scream the judge of Cheatham County. Then he raised his middle finger to the man and to all other people in the courtroom, according to local news channel WNCN.
Judge Philip Maxie decided to warn the man. If he did not calm down, he would get a $ 1 million bailout. Charles was obviously not used to it. He sat down, but then provoked the judge again.
Now he was awarded a $ 10 million guaranty. That went on until Charles finally received a $ 14 million bailout.
Nicols is also suspected of being involved in the death of his girlfriend Alicia Hanvy. She died in March when she was overtaken by a car on her own driveway.
