No, a woman wasn’t convicted today simply for laughing during Jeff Session’s confirmation hearing

The same thing would happen to someone disrupting a Judge. It’s called contempt of court.

“Fairooz was convicted on both misdemeanors Wednesday, but jurors stressed they focused on the parading and picketing charges, and not on the laughing bit.

“She did not get convicted for laughing. It was her actions as she was being asked to leave,” the jury foreperson told the Huffington Post. “Ms. Fairooz’s comments as she was being escorted out caused the session to stop. It disrupted the session.”

Though other jurors reportedly said they thought it was ridiculous Fairooz was removed in the first place, they also said there was no way to deny the disruption charges.”
