Contempt of Court is a ludicrous concept- H. Beatty Chadwick was divorced, and at the sole accusation of his wife, the court ordered him to pay her $2.5 million allegedly stored in offshore bank accounts. Regardless of whether or not he couldn't or didn't want to provide the money, he spent 14 years in prison despite never actually being charged with a crime. It has no current purpose except giving the court power where it should have none. CoC needs to see serious reform.
