Courtroom gesture earns man six-month jail term

County judge asked Kane E. Kellett to raise his right hand and be sworn in court Saturday morning; the Crystal Lake man raised just a finger.
The middle one.
The gesture might have felt good at the time, but the 24-year-old may be rethinking his actions Monday as he sits in the county jail, serving a six-month sentence for contempt of court.
The incident, which also included some profane language directed toward Judge G. Martin Zopp, occurred less than 12 hours after police captured Kellett in Crystal Lake on warrants for home invasion, aggravated battery and other charges.
