Ohio Judge Bans Mentioning Of The Constitution In Her Court

In a recent pre-trial hearing in Xenia, Ohio, a judge agreed with a prosecutor's motion to prohibit the defendant from mentioning the Constitution or the constitutionality of the law he was charged with violating.

Judge Catherine Barber stated “there will be no mentioning of the Constitution” to the defendant, Virgil Vaduva.

The prosecutor made the claim that mentioning the Constitution “will confuse the jury,” to which Vaduva replied that uttering words on a public sidewalk, his panhandling charge, constitutes free speech.
