Another ‘victim’ of the naive belief that the Courts have no jurisdiction over a “sovereign” person. 180 days for criminal contempt of court and additional charges for assault.
Hull asked Hochstetter to approach the bench, but the 32-year-old reportedly refused to identify himself and did not come forward.
When the judge – who knew Hochstetter – verbally confronted him, Hochstetter “stood up and began to yell that he was not Scott Hochstetter, that he had constitutional rights to a jury trial and that he could not be touched,” police reported.
Despite repeated orders to sit and be quiet or leave, Hochstetter reportedly continued to stand and cause a disturbance – even after Hull threatened him with criminal contempt of court.
