From 'Wrath of God' to 'Nubian Queen': This Fed Judge Probably Had a Weirder Day Than You

A piece of advice: Don’t threaten -- or even appear to threaten -- federal judges. That will almost never end well.

A Chicago man apologized to a federal judge Wednesday after he was accused of doing exactly that.

This flap began when Judge Sharon Johnson-Coleman said she would not modify conditions of preacher Herman Jackson’s bail on tax fraud charges.

He told her she would be visited by the "wrath of God."

“She reiterated that [she could not modify his bail terms] and demanded an apology,” CBS Chicago reports.

Jackson referred to Judge Johnson-Coleman as a “Nubian queen” in his apology and vowed to “step in the path of anyone who would try to do her harm.”

He clarified that when he told she would be visited by “God’s wrath,” he meant God would speak with her.

“I can’t say if I expected to leave or if I didn’t expect to leave. All that I know is I was gonna’ come in here on principle and if the God I serve saw fit, he was gonna’ let me walk out,” said Jackson.

“Judge Coleman said whether the marshals service presses charges is its decision, not hers,” CBS Chicago notes.
