I understand that. We don't know what kind of shape she is in. I'd hate for there to be a reason for another another judge to overturn the sentence as unreasonable punishment. I'd really like to make sure that she actually has to do the walk.

If you can't do the time then don't do the crime. The judge actually gave her a choice instead of just jail. Great for everyone concerned.

Creative solutions are good. I remember reading a story once about a judge ordering a man to move within walking distance of his bar after multiple dui arrests.

If her health is a problem then I guess she's still healthy enough to do 60 days in jail.

She should take her fat ass friend, who walked out of court with her, it would do them BOTH a lot of good !

I love that judge, no nonsense, no back peddling, just right to the point and the punishment fits the crime. She will think twice next time, and I loved the look on her face when he sentenced her to 30 days, looks like reality set in.

Love it, love it , love it.

Why should walking be thought of as punishment?
