SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: North Carolina Judge Michael Helms is under fire after citing an attorney with contempt of court for saying the word "Lord" in his classroom.

Joining us now, defense attorney Raymond Marshall.

Raymond, tell us about this case.


HANNITY: I'm good, sir. How are you?

MARSHALL: Well, this case was not an — too unusual case. It was a misdemeanor case that was scheduled to be heard about September 18.

On the calendar call, the case was continued until February 5 of 2007. The case of continued because both defense attorneys, myself and Mr. Dorasami, who represented two twins in a misdemeanor...

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: I'm sorry to interrupt you. We only have less than a minute. I want to get your story out there. What did you do wrong? What did the judge think you did wrong? Tell us exactly in about 45 seconds what you did wrong.

MARSHALL: Well, Alan, I was questioning a witness in the case, and I was trying to continue to ask certain questions to get a clear response. And Judge Helms felt that was enough and stopped me.

And I was a bit frustrated, because he kept interfering during the examination of the witness and I just stopped and I said, "Lord." And I was about to say, "Give me strength." But before I could, Judge Helms stopped me, called me up to the bench and asked me if I had said, "Lord."

And I said: "Yes, your honor, I did. And I was about to say 'Lord, give me strength,' which I consider a short prayer."

He said, "At the end of the case I want you to show cause why I should not hold you in contempt."

At the end of the day I apologized to Judge Helms, but he told me he didn't want to hear from me at that time, and he'd like to hear from me at the end of the case. At the end of the case he scheduled a show cause...

HANNITY: I don't like to interrupt you. We want to follow this case. We went a little long in the last segment. We're going to continue to.

And that's outrageous, and I want to continue to follow up for our audience here. So we thank you. We appreciate you being with us tonight. And we wish you the best. That should not have happened, in my mind.
