Magistrate Judge Rebecca Adams of Lexington, SC; Humanitarian award winner


FYI: Judge Roy Bean was an infamous Justice of the Peace and saloon owner in Texas who called himself the "The Law West of the Pecos." Roy was also affectionately referred to as the Hanging Judge.


In one matter, Rebecca presided over a case involving Twanda “Shinda” Brown who Rebecca cheerfully ordered jailed for 57 days because she couldn’t afford to pay a $100 a month toward two traffic ticket fines.


At the time Ms. Brown was 40 years old and a single mother of seven children who lived in federal subsidized housing in Columbia and worked at Burger King to cover her bills.


While trying to explain herself Judge Adams abruptly cut her off. The following dialogue then took place as captured on courtroom microphones.



“Anybody ever put you in jail?” (referencing traffic fines)


“Oh God, no — I’ve got seven kids.”


“Oh God — you’ve gotta quit breaking the law.”

“I don’t care if you have 17 children.”

“I don’t care if you have to get five jobs to pay my tickets off.”


I see Rebecca, according to your moronic state of mind, the traffic tickets issued to Ms. Brown were your personal property. Isn’t South Carolina a great country?


And lastly, for providing her useless services in acting as a rogue judge, Rebecca is paid about $77,000 a year.


As we speak (ca. January 2020), Rebecca continues to sit as a Lexington County Magistrate judge in Lexington, South Carolina.
