Judge Alexis Krot
  • Burhan Chowdhury, a 72-year-old man who was diagnosed with cancer in his lymph nodes in 2019, received a citation for overgrown grass in August.
  • Michigan Judge Alexis Krot told Chowdhury on Monday that he “should be ashamed of himself” for not keeping up with the landscaping around his house.
  • Chowdhury’s son, 33-year-old Shibbir Chowdhury, explained to Krot that his father is sick and they had already cleaned the area around their house after receiving the citation.
  • Krot told Chowdhury, "If I could give you jail time on this I would."

Michigan Judge Alexis Krot is under fire for her overreaction to 72-year-old Burhan Chowdhury’s overgrown lawn.

During a Zoom hearing on Monday, Krot told Chowdhury, who is very ill with cancer, that he “should be ashamed of himself” for not keeping up with the landscaping around his house, according to the Washington Post.
