Judge allows inmate to see his baby for the first time



A Kentucky judge, who recently made headlines because she was furious
over an inappropriately dressed inmate, is making headlines again after
she allowed an inmate to meet his one-month-old son for the first time
during a court hearing.
Judge Amber Wolf had just wrapped up a hearing for James Roeder and
was about to begin a hearing for his wife, Ashley Roeder, when the judge
did “probably one of the best things” she has ever done, www.wdrb.com/story/32709997/video-jefferson-county-judge-all.
James and Ashley are co-defendants in the same burglary case and were
ordered to have no contact with each other. Despite the ruling, when
the judge learned James had not met his one-month-old son, she made a
special arrangement.
“I saw her try to hold the baby up when he came out for his case to
be called with his attorney,” Judge Wolf told WDRB. “And I thought that
he hadn’t seen that. And it occurred to me after we finished this case
that he had not met his baby — who was 30 days old — and that he was not
going to get an opportunity to meet his baby anytime in the near
future.”
In the video, you can hear the judge giving clear instructions about the special meeting:


Judge Wolf: “I don’t want you to say anything about your
case at all. Don’t say anything. Your lawyer is not present right now.
But I understand that there is a chance that you’re going to go back to
Todd County, and your baby is a month old, and you haven’t met that baby
yet. Is that right?”
James Roeder: “Yes maam.”


Judge Wolf: “Mrs. Roeder, do you want to come up here?”


Ashley Roeder is shown in the video carrying their one-month-old
child up to the podium. She hands the infant to James, who holds the
baby for the first time.
Judge Wolf reminded the couple their no-contact order is still intact, and that this was a “temporary exception.”


The judge told WDRB, “It wasn’t really a judge thing. I think it was just more of a human thing.”


The couple faces burglary charges connected to a Feb. 9 incident in
which police say they broke into a business and stole six televisions,
according to WDRB.

Here is the video of the same judge outraged that a defendant showed up in her court pantless:
