Judge Joe Brown Released After 5 Days in Jail: 'It's Like a Slave Warehouse'
Former TV court judge Joe Brown was held in contempt of court when he became irate in a child support case.
Judge Joe Brown likened jail to a "slave warehouse" after he was released this week.
The former TV judge was released from a Tennessee jail on Tuesday after serving a five-day sentence for contempt of court.
Following his release, he sat down with INSIDE EDITION to talk about the experience.
“A jail is like a slave warehouse," he said. "You sleep on a steel bed with holes cut in the frame. Lights are on continuously."
While in court, Brown said: “This sorry operation needs to stop.”
The judge told Brown: “Twenty-four hours Shelby County Jail for contempt.”
Brown replied: “This is a circus, sir.”
The judge said: “That's three days.”
He was eventually held in contempt and sentenced to five days behind bars.
After his release, he said: “I've always aggressively defended people. I talk the talk, but I also walk the walk,” and compared himself to some famous figures, including Muhammad Ali and Nelson Mandela.
