A Franklin County, Ohio judge has ordered three criminal offenders to get COVID-19 shots as part of the terms of their probation sentences, WSYX ABC6 reports.
Common Pleas Court Judge Richard Frye took the concept of ‘judicial activism’ to a whole new, personal level by mandating the defendants in his courtroom receive the experimental COVID-19 vaccine.
One of the defendants, Sylvaun Latham, who was sentenced to probation for a gun and drug charge, said Judge Frye told him in court that he could reduce the length of his probation from five years to one year if he agreed to get jabbed.
“He said something about a new delta strain out attacking, like, black people,” Latham told the reporter.
Latham agreed ‘in the moment’ to Judge Frye’s vaccine order but felt the judge overstepped authority regarding his health. He said he plans to contact the ACLU on the matter. Watch:
