( – On May 15, Corey Harris opted to not make a physical appearance in court for his hearing opting to instead connect via a Zoom call. The hearing related to his driving with a suspended driver’s license. The video which has now been shared on Washtenaw County Judge Cedric Simpson’s YouTube page has shown that the man chose to enter the Zoom call while driving. 

Simpson was quick to inquire whether Harris was driving, to which he answered that he was just pulling into his doctor’s office parking spot and that he would soon be ready for the hearing. Following a brief pause Harris confirmed that he was no longer driving. Natalie Pate, the attorney representing Harris in this case requested from the court an adjournment for two to four weeks. 

However, Simpson who checked the case file in front of him stated that perhaps he was misunderstanding something. He continued by asking the attorney if this was a “driving while license suspended” case to which Pate confirmed. Simpson then pointed out that Harris had just been seen driving even though he had no license. 

Pate responded by pointing out that those were the charges. Simpson was quick to respond by pointing out that in the record it was stated that he had no license and that it was suspended but that they had just seen Harris driving. Pate confirmed this was the case.  

Simpson proceeded to question why Harris would do something like that and then instructed him that his bond was revoked and that he would be required to turn himself in by that evening to the Washtenaw County Jail.
