A public defender was jailed after causing a disruption in Vermont District Court in Middlebury on Monday. Lorin Duckman was held in contempt of court by Judge Helen Toor after he would not stop interrupting her during a sentencing hearing. Duckman was released 45 minutes later. The court clerk says it was the first time he ever saw a judge throw a lawyer behind bars.
