Goatherder Legal: Chicken meets roost as pay up or contempt time arrives

From the Eyewitness NewsTM crash and burn files it appears Judge Vance has run out of patience with Danny Abel not paying his court ordered sanctions. (Vital background here) Click the pic to score the 4 page PDF where Judge Vance tells Abel to pay up or face contempt of court:
