Judge releases woman jailed for contempt

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The woman accused of causing a disturbance in Judge Katie King's court room earlier this week appeared much more calm and subdued when she appeared in court on Thursday.

On Tuesday 24-year-Saffire Doss had a heated exchange with Judge King that was caught on video.

The confrontation landed Doss in jail for contempt.

King had sentenced Doss to five days - a typical sentence for contempt of court. She pleaded guilty, credited for time served, and released.
