Maryland Judge Pleads Guilty, Ordering Man To Be Tased in Court

Charles County Judge Robert Nalley thought it was a good idea to use a stun device on a man for talking.

As a result, Judge Nalley was fired and criminally charged.

[__Newly released video__](http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/judge-caught-tape-ordering-deputy-stun-defendant-court-38132510) shows the July 2014 incident where defendant Delvon King was in Charles County Circuit Court on gun charges.

King was in the midst of making a point, but Judge Nalley didn’t want to hear what King had to say– telling him to stop talking twice.

But when King kept making his legal argument, Judge Nalley decided it was time for some shock therapy.

The judge ordered a sheriffs deputy to activate a pair of 50,000-volt stun cuffs that were shackled to the ankles of the defendant.

Upon the high voltage shock, King careened into the floor screaming in obvious pain.

Judge Nalley admitted that he made an error in judgment.

The judge plead guilty to the crime. Judge Nalley was sentenced to a year of probation, a $5,000 fine, and mandatory anger management classes.

The judge was also banned from being a judge for life.

Kristi O’Malley who was the prosecutor in the case said:

> “[Judge Nalley] very quickly grew impatient, and his ordering of the stun device was highly disproportionate for nothing more than verbal interruptions. Our constitution does not allow a violation of rights based on annoyance”

Furthermore, U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said in a statement:

> “Disruptive defendants may be excluded from the courtroom and prosecuted for obstruction of justice and contempt of court, but force may not be used in the absence of danger.”

In 2009, Judge Nally also was convicted of slashing the tires of a court employee that parked in his un-designated parking space at the court.

He eventually plead guilty to the tire slashing; he was fined, ordered to write a letter of apology, and received a five day suspension without pay.

But the judge didn’t learn his lesson, and now he’s just another convict.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
