A Texas Judge Interrupts A Deliberating Jury To Claim That God Told Him The Defendant Is Not Guilty.





A Texas judge interrupts a deliberating jury to claim that God told him the defendant is not guilty.

In Texas, Comal County Judge Jack Robison tried to convince a jury that a defendant was not guilty because God told him so.

By invoking an imaginary conversation with an imaginary God, Judge Robison was trying to “sway jurors to return a not guilty verdict in the trial of a Buda woman accused of trafficking a teen girl for sex.”

According to the Herald-Zeitung in New Braunfels, Judge Jack Robison apologized to jurors for the interruption, but defended his actions by declaring:

When God tells me I gotta do something, I gotta do it.
