Man punches attorney after receiving 15-year prison sentence

YORK, S.C. — Lamarcus Williamson wasn’t pleased with his 15-year prison sentence for robbery, drug and assault charges. WCNC-TV reports the 30-year-old punched his public defender last week after receiving the sentence from a York County judge. 

And the video from the courtroom proves it.

“I’m still sore,” Hall told WCNC’s Rad Berky. “He hit me right above the teeth and right below the nose.”

Williamson received an additional six months for “contempt of court,” and Berky reports Williamson may also face extra charges for assault.

“It is clear your conduct is not governed by rational thought,” Judge William Nettles told Williamson in court, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The Observer also reports Hall had never experienced or witnessed anything like the punching incident in 25 years of experience.
