According to William Gupton, the Director of the Shelby County Corrections Center, former judge Joe Brown is booked and in a cell alone in a protected area from other inmates. This is a standard procedure for any inmate who might be threatened by inmates at the facility.

Brown will serve a five-day jail term.

Earlier this week, an appeals court reaffirmed a lower court's decision to uphold Brown's jail sentence for contempt of court.

He was charged after he lashed out at a magistrate in the juvenile court back in march of 2014. Brown was helping a woman with a custody case.

Brown claimed the magistrate had neither the legal standing to hear the case nor reprimand him.

You may remember, this happened during his failed attempt to run for Shelby County D.A.

"Judge Joe Brown" aired from 1998 to 2013.
