A Cincinnati man who pleaded guilty to possession of the drug fentanyl is challenging the decision by a county judge to condition his probation on getting a Covid-19 vaccine, saying he doesn’t want or need it.
Brandon Rutherford, 21, was given a suspended sentence – known as Community Control – last week, for possession of the deadly drug. He was shocked, however, when Hamilton County Judge Christopher Wagner gave him 60 days to get vaccinated or be sent to prison for 18 months.
In America we are threatening prison time unless you undergo a medical procedure.
You guys awake yet?
