Clark County District Court Judge Jasmin Lilly-Spells, 39, was arrested on Mother's Day 2022 May 8th in Las Vegas. Judge Jasmin is charged with domestic battery.
Judge Jasmin and her husband were at home arguing. Things got so heated during the argument that the judge allegedly took 2 of her husband's play station gaming systems and stabbed them with a screw driver.
The husband told the judge to stop. The judge is then accused of pushing her husband out of the way and onto the ground. The judge's husband says that he suffers from sciatica, and the alleged push really hurt him.
