Caught on Camera: Brevard County Judge “Beats Assistant PD’s Ass” for not Waiving Speedy

By Haydee Oropesa

Brevard County Judge John Murphy challenged assistant public defender Andrew Weinstock to an “ass beating” for refusing to waive speedy trial on behalf of his client in court this morning.  Judge Murphy said if he had a rock he would throw it at Attorney Weinstock’s head while he was at the podium advocating for his client.  When Weinstock asserted his right to be heard and did not back down, Judge Murphy invited him to the back for a physical brawl.  All was caught on camera, see video and news story (here).
