Contempt of Court:
Contempt of court is a refusal to obey any legal order, mandate, or decree made or given by any judge. A charge of contempt of court may involve failing to appear at a scheduled hearing or failing to abide by a condition of bond the judge ordered. In many cases, contempt can also involve the defendant’s behavior and actions in the courtroom towards the Judge after being given an order by the Judge. A person convicted of contempt of court faces up to 1 year in the county jail.
