A Florida burglary suspect identified as Demetrius Lewis shot his shot at a female judge during a virtual court appearance on Thursday, February 4.
During the court appearance, the man told the judge how gorgeous she is and even went as far as professing love to her.
The judge identified as Tabitha Blackmon smiled and let the suspect know that his flattery would not work in a court of law.
The suspect had said:
“Judge, you [are] so gorgeous, so gorgeous judge, I just had to tell you. You’re gorgeous. I love you. I love you."
The judge was flattered and responded:
“Alright Mr. Lewis. Flattery will get you everywhere. But maybe not here.”
Lewis is facing a charge of attempted burglary and possession of the drug ecst*sy.
