It's Off to the Slam for "Karen"!

A Florida woman whose image went viral when she coughed on a customer at a Pier 1 store last year in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.
A judge in Jacksonville on Thursday also ordered Debra Hunter to pay a $500 fine, serve six months probation and participate in a mental health evaluation along with anger management, David Chapman, communications director for the state attorney's office in Jacksonville, said in an email. She was also ordered to cover the costs of the victim's Covid-19 test.

It seems that the perp's statement to the court of remorse focused entirely on how the blowback of her assault had affected her and her family with not a word about what she had done to the victim. The judge was having none of that shit.

We got where we are by letting people off the hook. Here's one more. After you do a certain amount of it, it is locked in, it becomes the only option. That is when things really go sideways.

Its the old when you make a fist its expression,
when it hits my nose its assault.

If you cannot control yourself, you are a risk
and put others at risk.

To think she can likely legally drive a car.

Eck!

Cap'n, you're the legal beagle, it's not my style but as I recall coughing, spitting, bleeding even can be assault? Misdemeanor? Felony 4? Dates to St Ronald of Rayguns' manufactured AIDS/HIV hysteria?

TB, depends on the state, but doing it intentionally does generally meet the test of being an intentional and unwanted touching.

Karen's going to have fun for a month.
