Judge sentences offenders to sing Christmas carols

A US judge is letting minor traffic offenders off without a fine - if they stand up in court and sing a Christmas carol.

Columbia City Judge Tom DuBois offers offending motorists the festive amnesty each Christmas, reports the Tennessean.

The newspaper says the court has so far this year reverberated with versions of Jingle Bells, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

Judge DuBois said: ''Some people need a little help with their tunes. So we sometimes have duets and trios, even quartets.

''And our court officer, Kenny Lovett, sometimes helps people out. He sings in his church choir.''

:-? ...Well, I guess it is some type of punishment.... :-b

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
