By Ben Carlson, News staff

A female inmate was ordered to serve 30 days for contempt of court after calling District Court Judge Donna Dutton a pair of derogatory names during a court appearance last Thursday.

Moments after Dutton warned Melissa Reece, 30, of 244 Douglas Ave., Frankfort to be stop “running her mouth,” Reece apparently called Dutton a b**ch and a wh*re while walking away.

After being alerted to what Reece said, Dutton ordered her back in front of the bench.
