Attorney Andrea Burton was cited by Youngstown municipal court judge Robert Milich for wearing the pin while representing a client in court on Friday



A northern
Ohio attorney could serve five days in jail, pending an appeal, after a municipal judge held her in contempt of court for wearing a Black Lives Matter pin.

While representing a client in court on Friday, attorney Andrea Burton was cited by Youngstown municipal court judge Robert Milich for wearing a pin that, she said, was covered by the US constitution’s first amendment.

“He indicated to me that he didn’t know whether I was trying to seek attention from the news, or whatever the case, but that legally, I wasn’t allowed to wear it,” Burton, 30, told a local NBC affiliate. “And I deferred, and said that I’m respecting my first amendment right, that I’m not neutral in injustice, and to remain neutral becomes an accomplice to oppression.”
