What's in a smile? Well in defendant White Twin's case, an extra six months of incarceration. At his sentencing, Twin smiled after the district judge sentenced him to a term of imprisonment of 78 months. Upon noticing his smile, the judge asked, "You think that's humorous, sir?" and promptly added an additional six months to the term. On appeal, the Eighth Circuit affirmed. The court noted that the district court is "uniquely situated to observe [a defendant's] demeanor" and "may consider a defendant's attitude and demeanor when exercising its sentencing discretion." The lesson? Be humble and contrite at sentencing.
