FORT MYERS, Fla.- Corey Daniels and his family say his emotions got to him last week when he stood up during jury selection in his sister's murder trial, and attacked her accused killer, Tyrone Campbell.
Daniels is a bus monitor for Lee County schools, and volunteers in the community. He does not have a criminal record.
His family and friends asked a judge to release him from his six month sentence, instead, volunteering in the community while taking anger management classes.
The judge said no because of how violent the attack was. He made it clear contempt of court is serious.
The judge said it's clear Daniels has a solid family unit, but he regrettably could not let him out of his sentence.
