A defendant appeared in a virtual court hearing before a Michigan judge as “Buttf**ker 3000”. On Tuesday, May 11, Nathaniel Saxton appeared over the Zoom conference before St Joseph District Court Judge Jeffrey Middleton. The arraignment hearing was posted to YouTube, in which Middleton was heard saying, “Then we’ll bring this fool in.”

Who is Nathaniel Saxton?

Saxton was present in the virtual court on a count of possession of drug paraphernalia in the city of Three Rivers. As he was summoned in, a username -- “Buttf**ker 3000” -- popped up on the screen and a man was seen. “Good morning, sir, what's your name?” Middleton asked, to which Saxton replied after a brief pause: “My name is Nathaniel Saxton, sir.” The judge then said, “Your name is not Buttf**ker 3000, you yo-ho, logging into my court with that as your screen name?” before adding, “What kind of idiot logs into court like that?”

Again Middleton questioned, “What's your name again?” while Saxton appeared embarrassed and confused as he tried to fix the awkward username. “Nathaniel Saxton sir, but I don't believe that I typed anything like that in,” he replied. “Well, that's what it says,” the judge stated. The defendant then attempted to say sorry as he was cut off by the judge, who told him, “Yeah, you should.” “I'm going to put you in the waiting room, you can sit in limbo for a while and think about what you call yourself online,” Middleton then added.



Sometime later, Saxton re-appeared during the virtual hearing “Nathaniel Saxaon”, but with the wrong spelling of his own name. “Your honor, if I may explain, my sister was the one who set up my Zoom account or whatever. It's not what you think, I'm embarrassed. I'm sorry,” he explained. The charge against him was then called an alleged violation of a city ordinance, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine in the court. Though he initially pleaded not guilty but later changed it when the judge said the normal fine for the count is $200. He confessed to possessing a used syringe that tested positive for meth residue and other paraphernalia.

He was then asked to pay $200 by Middleton who then asked, “Is your sister there?” “No, unfortunately, she is not,” Saxton replied. “Tell her she almost got you put in jail for contempt of court,” the judge remarked. Then Saxton said sorry again and Middleton added, “Okay.”

This bizarre incident happened two months after a Zoom assault hearing case involving judge Middleton had to be postponed after it was found that the alleged abuser was discovered at the home of the alleged victim. During the hearing in March, state attorney assistant Deborah Davis was quizzing Mary Lindsey, who was allegedly abused by a man, identified as Coby James Harris. A few minutes into it, Davis said, “Your honor. I have reason to believe that the defendant is in the same apartment as the complaining witness right now, and I am extremely scared for her safety. The fact that she’s looking off to the side and he’s moving around, I want some confirmation that she is safe before we continue.”

Then police checked the address given by the alleged victim and they found the two at the same place. “Your Honor, me and Mary both don’t want the no-contact. I ask that that be dropped. I’m sorry I lied to you. I knew the cops were outside. I don’t know why I—” Harris said while in handcuffs. The judge then said, “Mr Harris, my advice is, don’t say anything else. The hearing is adjourned. Your bond is canceled. If you have $10 million, you can’t bond out. In addition, the prosecutor’s probably also going to charge you with obstruction of justice.”
