Talk about bad timing, Katie.

Barely 48 hours after the worst mass shooting in America, which happened inside a gay nightclub, convicted gay basher Kathryn Knott formally filed yet another request with the Common Pleas Court for early release from jail.

Attorney William Brennan filed the request on Knott’s behalf urging the judge to release her from Riverside Correctional Facility in Northeast Philadelphia immediately. The Fireball aficionado has been in protective custody since February due to the media attention surrounding her case.

Philadelphia Magazine reports:

In the motion, Brennan argues that while Knott’s minimum release date based on the sentence is July 8th, she would have become eligible for early release on June 6th, because inmates can get credit for good behavior while in jail. According to the motion, Knott hasn’t had any behavioral issues while at Riverside, and she completed a court-ordered anger management class in April.

This is Knott’s second attempt at trying to weasel her way out of jail before her sentence is officially up. About a month after entering the facility, she tried negotiating with the judge for early release, asking to instead record a public service announcement about being nice to gay people. The judge said no.

Once Knott is released, she will be required to complete two years of probation, during which she will be forbidden from leaving the state of Pennsylvnaia. She will also be required to pay a $2,000 fine, though we wouldn’t be surprised if she tried to negotiate that down as well. After all, think of all the shots of Jägermeister $2,000 could buy.
