Judge Denies Philly Gay Basher Kathryn Knott’s Early Release Request

by Rob Smith June 20, 2016



Dear convicted gay basher Kathryn Knott: in the words of our favorite lesbian Suze Orman: you are denied.

A Philadelphia judge has denied her request for early release based on good behavior.

The men who participated in the bashing, Kevin Harrigan and Philip Williams, avoided jail time with a plea that included community service and probation, but Knott decided to try her luck with a trial. Bad move.

After being convicted of simple assault, conspiracy and reckless endangerment in the attack of two gay men in Philadelphia in 2014 and sentenced to 5-10 months behind bars, Knott faced a civil suit from the victims and was unsuccessful at getting released in order to record an anti-bullying PSA and move on.

Now’s she’s definitely not getting time off for good behavior. Philadelphia Gay News writes:

An attorney for Knott submitted a petition June 10 for an “earned time, good time” release, which allows petitioners to be released before the minimum time limit on their sentence if they have behaved as model inmates.

Knott’s attorney Bill Brennan told PGN she’s been a “model inmate,” which is why he filed the request:

“She’s been performing her duties — cleaning toilets — and has been a model inmate. Inmates are given this reward, if you will, where the minimum sentence is slightly reduced and they have the opportunity to be released slightly early with ‘earned time, good time.'”

Unfortunately for Knott, the judge denied the request. However, Brennan intends to revisit it once she meets her 5-month minimum sentence:

“I’m cautiously optimistic that she will not be singled out for any reason because it really is the norm that, if you’ve behaved yourself, you are eligible for release at the minimum.”

We’re not really into kicking someone when they’re down, but unfortunately Knott was. Here’s to hoping that she’s learned her lesson once she completes her minimum sentence…and no less.

Only One Candidate Looked Presidential At The Debate. It Wasn’t The Orange One.

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
