International News: Convict who attacked Las Vegas judge in court indicted for attempted murder

Posted: Monday, February 12, 2024. 12:56 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Deobra Redden, 30, will be arraigned on February 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on charges of attempted murder among others after attacking a Nevada judge during a sentencing hearing in January, the Associated Press reports.

In a courtroom video that went viral, Redden leaped over a judicial bench and went after Clark County District Court Judge Mary Kay Holthus, who was about to deliver Redden’s sentence in an attempted battery case on January 3.

A grand jury returned the nine-count indictment against Redden on Thursday. The new indictment for attempted murder alleges that Redden attacked 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.

Courtroom cameras recorded as Holthus’ clerk and a court marshal fought with Redden to restrain him in the wild video widely viewed on the internet and social media posts. A week later Judge Holthus sentenced him to up to four years in prison for the battery charge he had pleaded guilty to in November.

Redden’s foster mother, Karen Springer, and older sister, LaDonna Daniels, told reporters outside court last month that Redden has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, court records show he was found competent to stand trial.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said at the time that Redden’s adult criminal history included convictions for three felonies and nine misdemeanors, mostly involving violent acts.
