Footage Of Felon Attacking Vegas Judge Proves The Left Is Too Soft On Violent Criminals [VIDEO]

Before becoming a prominent figure on social media, Deobra Redden exemplified the left’s ineffective approach to “criminal justice.” Redden gained notoriety for assaulting a judge in Las Vegas after receiving a jail sentence on a Wednesday.

While media reports labeled him a “three-time felon,” this fails to convey the full extent of his interactions with law enforcement, including the recent attack on Judge Mary Kay Holthus. Redden faced a current charge of attempted battery with substantial bodily harm, but his criminal history began over a decade ago in 2012.

In his first conviction, Redden was found guilty of assault causing bodily injury to a family member, resulting in a 45-day jail term and a fine. Subsequently, he accumulated three convictions for domestic battery in the following year, leading to two months in jail, fines, and mandatory anger management classes.

In 2014, Redden faced attempted theft charges, receiving probation. Notably, his lawyer sought a similar outcome during the recent court appearance. However, Redden violated probation multiple times, engaging in domestic battery, tampering with his monitoring bracelet, and kicking a police officer.

Moving to 2018, he was convicted of battery with substantial bodily harm after biting a woman and damaging a car window. Despite probation, he found himself back in the legal system. In 2021, he was convicted of domestic battery, sentenced to prison for 12-30 months, and granted parole in 2022.

In the same year, Redden faced charges of attempted home invasion and property destruction. He appeared in court in January 2023, pleaded guilty, and was released on probation. However, he violated probation in October, receiving a 106-day jail sentence.

Additional incidents in 2023 involved threats with a baseball bat and admission to a state mental health facility. Despite competency evaluations, he pleaded guilty in November, leading to a bench warrant for his arrest in December due to a missed court appearance.

During his latest court appearance on Wednesday, Redden argued for probation, citing improved mental health and employment. However, Judge Holthus indicated a prison sentence, prompting Redden to lash out at her, shouting profanities.

Redden, not restrained due to a prior agreement with prosecutors, was restrained by others in the courtroom. Authorities, including Chief Clark County District Attorney Richard Scow and District Attorney Steve Wolfson, emphasized his long history of violence.

The question arises: why was probation even considered for a repeatedly violent individual with a history of recidivism? Redden’s story extends beyond being a “three-time felon,” encompassing numerous misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors, and domestic violence charges, highlighting his persistent involvement in the criminal justice system without signs of reform.
