Kim Davis will be jailed on contempt charges until she agrees to issue same-sex marriage licenses
According to Raw Story, Kim Davis, the defiant Kentucky county clerk, was found in contempt of court and taken into federal custody — and she will be spending the night in jail.
U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning ordered Davis, the Rowan County clerk, to be jailed on the contempt charges until she agrees to comply with multiple court orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
"The court cannot condone the willful disobedience of its lawfully issued order," Bunning said. "If you give people the opportunity to choose which orders they follow, that's what potentially causes problems."
