This video can impact the criminal justice system in a negative way. It makes the court system come off as a joke because of the fact that the attorney arrived at court intoxicated. This also gives the public a false sense of what the criminal justice system is used for. Throughout the clip, the attorney showed various signs of being drunk and the judge was more worried about what had happened to him rather than the actual case.

It is not fair that his client had to endure this misrepresentation and should be provided with a new lawyer as well as a new trial.

His first mistake was actually showing up to court intoxicated. This was a completely dumb idea that proved to be the demise of him. He completely misrepresented his client and was unfair to him. If I were the judge, I would not have done much different. She was patient and asked many questions that lead to the attorney contradicting himself. Without her patience she might not have had as many reasons to put him in contempt of court....
