Split screen with Judge Simpson looking amazed on one side and Corey Harris looking worried on the other side.

If your license is suspended don’t join a court video call while driving

Michigan resident Corey Harris appeared on Zoom for his court case relating to a suspended driving licence. Unfortunately he was clearly driving a car during the Zoom call.

Possibly he was not aware that the call would be displayed in the open court. Judge J. Cedric Simpson immediately asked Harris if he was driving.

“Actually, I’m pulling into my doctor’s office actually, so just give me one second. I’m parking right now,” Harris responded.

Judge Simpson was clearly astounded and clearly mouthed ‘Wow’. He went on to say, “So maybe I don’t understand something. This is a driving while license suspended (case) … and he was just driving, and he didn’t have a license?”

At that moment Harris realised what he had done and could be seen to be horrified.

His lawyer in the court room asked for an adjournment however Judge Simpson had seen enough.

“I don’t even know why he would do that,” Simpson said. “So the defendant’s bond is revoked in this matter. The defendant is to turn himself in at the Washtenaw County jail by 6 p.m. today. Failure to turn himself in will result in a bench warrant with no bond

Harris was released from custody two days later, and is scheduled to appear in court again June 5. Hopefully he will avoid driving for the next appearance.
