Judges beware: telling a defendant that bringing chicken into your court (even if it is delicious, delicious chicken) in order to prove completion of community service may result in chicken being brought into your court room (much to your palate's delight and your career's chagrin)!
Personally, I don't see why the State's Attorney's Office and the Circuit Chief Judge got so upset. So what? The judge was made to eat his words. Literally. The fact is, the defendant followed a court order and justice was served (Jamaican Jerk-style, but sans slaw). I bet the Assistant State's Attorney was just upset that she didn't get a drumstick.
