Mom, son sentenced for court outburst

A mother and son have been sentenced after their courtroom outbursts during a child molesting trial last year.

Michael Sloan, 25, of Edinburgh, had one year added to his 35-year sentence for child molesting for striking and kicking a police officer multiple times after his trial in Johnson Circuit Court.

His mother, Paula Johnson-Smith, 48, of Indianapolis, was given one year probation for making threats to harm the female victim in that case, according to Johnson County deputy prosecutor Joe Villanueva.
