I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the judge editorializing like that. It seems like something is expect from a television court judge who makes a living being outrageous and flamboyant, not a real judge with the heavy responsibilities that the job comes with.

Perhaps, but the Defendant was clearly being disruptive and disrespectful during the proceedings. It sounded to me like the Judge was just fed up, and let it get the best of him. Regardless, she's never going to breathe air outside of prison again, so at least there's that.

Maybe he's trying to get his own show?

That being said, no problem whatsoever with the sentence.

It was sentencing, so it wasn't in front if the jury. I doubt he would have blown up in front of a jury like that. Judges are human, and if you push their buttons enough, they can lose it, too. I'd wager this was not the first time this woman showed that kind of disrespect during all this. I wouldn't think this is how he conducts himself on a the bench every day.

Did she kill him because he flirted with the waitress at Applebees?  Or because he beat her?

Either way, she's sure to find some top-shelf girlfriends in prison.

Actually, she can use the video of the Judge's comments and behavior to appeal.  He clearly was not presiding with the cool unbiased decision making required of a judge.  Regardless of the heinous actions of the defendant, a judge should never be acting on his emotions.  Saying he hoped she dies in prison is a guaranteed appeal, truthfully she probably played the judge to do exactly that and sadly he opened the door for her.

You should never mouth off in front of a judge.

Her conduct and demeanor Wednesday invoked in McBain a "little bit of an angry response," the judge said Thursday, April 17.
In some circumstances, judges are allowed to express emotion, he said.
There are people who like judges who are "hushed and quiet" and distribute soft admonishments. "Sometimes, I think a judge needs a little fire in the right kind of cases," McBain said.

They do get upset about some interesting things.  I was in court for a day (part of an assignment), and watched a judge completely go apeshiat over a guy's shirt, which had a naked woman on it.  Yeah, not the best idea, but the judge went on and on about it, and threatened the defense attorney with contempt unless he got his client to turn his shirt inside out.  The guy did so and then the judge said that he would have to wait until he addressed all of the other cases on the docket.

Then the poor guy who came up next (a basic driving issue, I think), was lambasted by the judge, mostly because he was still pissed off over the other guy.

"Jose Manuel Miguel Gonzales, in a few short weeks it will be spring. The snows of winter will flow away, the ice will vanish, the air will become soft and balmy. The annual miracle of the years will awaken and come to pass.

But you will not be there.

The rivulet will run its soaring course to the sea. The timid desert flowers will put forth their tender shoots. The glorious valleys in this imperial domain will blossom as the rose.

Still you will not be there.

From every treetop, some wildwood songster will carol his mating song. Butterflies will sport in the sunshine. The gentle breeze will tease the tassels of the wild grasses and all nature will be glad.

But you will not be there to enjoy it.

Because I command the sheriff of the county to lead you away to some remote spot, swing you by the neck from a knotting bough of some sturdy oak and let you hang until you are dead, dead, dead. And then Jose Manuel Miguel Gonzales, I further command that such officer retire quickly from your dangling corpse, that vultures may descend from the heavens upon your filthy body until nothing is left but the bare, bleached bones of a cold-blooded, blood-thirsty, throat-cutting, murdering son of a biatch."

According to Wikipedia:

According to tradition, the presiding judge, M.B. Gerry, allegedly told him:

"Stand up yah voracious man-eatin' sonofabiatch and receive yir sintince. When yah came to Hinsdale County, there was siven Dimmycrats. But you, yah et five of 'em, goddam yah. I sintince yah t' be hanged by th' neck ontil yer dead, dead, dead, as a warnin' ag'in reducin' th' Dimmycratic populayshun of this county. Packer, you Republican cannibal, I would sintince ya ta hell but the statutes forbid it.[7]"

In reality, what Judge Gerry told him was much more educated:

"Close your ears to the blandishments of hope. Listen not to its fluttering promises of life. But prepare to meet the spirits of thy murdered victims. Prepare for the dread certainty of death.[8]

This.  Anyone who hasn't seen a judge editorialize at sentencing hasn't been to very many criminal trials.

"The judge talked mean to me at sentencing" isn't grounds for appeal.

Why?

The judge gave her the exact sentence that the Michigan Criminal Laws requires him to give to someone convicted of Murder in the First Degree - life in prison with no possibility of parole.

What is there to appeal? That the judge was a meany-head poopypants to the defendant?

(1) Except as provided in sections 25 and 25a of chapter IX of the code of criminal procedure, 1927 PA 175, MCL 769.25 and 769.25a, a person who commits any of the following is guilty of first degree murder and shall be punished by imprisonment for life without eligibility for parole:

(a) Murder perpetrated by means of poison, lying in wait, or any other willful, deliberate, and premeditated killing.

I was in court one time for expired tags. This guy's case gets called up and he walks up there wearing a wife beater and his pants down past his rear. The judge took a look at this guy and said, "Hold on." He then had the guy hold his arms up in the air and spin around. While the guy did this (smirking and laughing) the judge said, "Folks I want to show you what will end up costing you a weekend in jail for contempt of court. Best pull your pants up when you come up here." He then directed the bailiff to take the guy to jail. The look on that guy's face was priceless!
