Kansas City Lawyer Carlos D. Romious will be staying in the Greene County jail for the next 120 days after exhibiting, "rude and angry demeanor," toward Greene County Circuit Court Judge Tom Mountjoy. Judge Mountjoy filed contempt charges on July 24, against Romious for displaying several previous outbursts in the courtroom.
Rominous, who was representing a man from St. Charles in a jury trial made repeated remarks toward the judge. On one occasion he asked, "if the 'proceeding was a joke' and stated to the Court 'you're going to sit your ass up there.'" Rominous then accused judge Mountjoy of "corrupting and stinking up the case" and "corrupting this system."
Judge Mountjoy then ordered Rominous to appear in court the next day at 8 a.m. When Rominous appeared before the judge the next morning he asked Judge Mountjoy ,"Are you a pedophile?"
Rominous , in another charge, is accused of attacking a court security officer, after refusing to go through a metal detector at the courthouse in Kansas City Kansas.
