Man Who Attacked Las Vegas Judge During Sentencing Now Indicted for Attempted Murder

A Nevada man who leaped over a judicial bench to attack a judge last month after he was denied probation has been indicted by a grand jury for attempted murder.

In courtroom video obtained by Fox News Digital, the attorney for Deobra Redden, 30, requests the judge give his client probation in the Jan. 3 hearing.

“I think it’s time he got a taste of something else,” Judge Mary Kay Holthus responded.

Redden is then seen flying in the air over the bench with his arms and legs wide open, before landing on the judge.

The video of the Clark County, Nevada, hearing has since gone viral.

Holthus and a marshal near her were both injured in the attack.

Redden’s nine-count indictment alleges he attempted to murder Holthus “by grabbing her, pulling her hair, placing his hands around her throat and/or hitting her on the head by manner and means unknown.”

He’s also accused of “punching and/or kicking and/or pushing” a Las Vegas police officer.

Redden was charged with attempted murder and a dozen other charges after the attack, including battery on a protected person resulting in substantial bodily harm and battery by a prisoner, after the attack.

Holthus was sentencing Redden in an attempted battery case that he pleaded guilty to in November when he leaped at her. She eventually sentenced him to up to four years for that case.

Holthus’ clerk and the marshal were eventually able to restrain Redden.

Redden has a history of violent criminal acts and convictions for three felonies and nine misdemeanors.

His foster mother and sister said outside the courthouse last month that Redden had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but he was found fit to stand trial.

    All the more reason to lock him up and throw away the key! He will always be a threat to those around him, zero chance he will ever be a productive member of society.

    i do not think he is fit for living around any people because he reacts so violently……i think he needs to be in jail a lot longer than that …and if and when he is let out she needs constant protection…if he is let go he needs to be in a psyichiatric ward.

    Bring back the death sentence for criminals like this. Enough is enough. If you can’t be reformed than you need to be send back to your maker.

    Here we go again! Looks just like when the elites took a protest to question an election and turned it into an insurrection! I don’t condone what this scum bag did and think he should be in prison but come on, attempted murder? Maybe this judge just needs to take her lumps like all the rest of the common folks out there whom are victims of these kinds of perpetrators and never get this zeal from a prosecutor. Maybe this judge should get together with the other judges and reflect how they got us to these crossroads in society where brazen acts and offenses by assholes in our society are the norm now.
