TAMPA, Fla. – A Florida judge tired of seeing inmates' underwear because of sagging orange pants decided to take action this week.
Circuit Judge Daniel Perry delayed court for an hour and a half Wednesday, as he ordered the 61 inmates on his docket back to jail so that a handful of them could change into better-fitting — if not as fashionable — bottoms.
According to a court transcript, Perry said he did not want to see people "with their rear ends hanging out of their pants." He added: "We're done."
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reminded deputies of proper sizing methods for inmates and some spare pants were also delivered to the courthouse.
