CeeLo

His Lawyer Calls B.S. On Judge Over Courtroom Camera

EXCLUSIVE

CeeLo
was railroaded by the judge and the prosecutor in his felony drug case ... standing in the crosshairs of media cameras as everyone else in court ducked for cover -- this according to his lawyer.

Blair Berk, who reps CeeLo, filed legal docs with the court -- obtained by TMZ -- in which she gripes about the way her client was depicted during his arraignment.  Berk objected to cameras in the courtroom, but Judge Shelly Torrealba felt the media had a right to record the proceedings.

Now here's what enraged Berk.  On arraignment day, the judge ordered the camera operator NOT record her or her staff.  The judge then ordered the camera position near the bench.  The prosecutors then conveniently stood near the court staff, so the only people in the shot were CeeLo and Berk.

Berk apparently feels her client -- who is presumed innocent -- was hung out to dry on the pretext of an open proceeding that was in fact more like a defendant under an interrogation lamp.

CeeLo is in court today.  We plan on livestreaming the action, but you probably won't see the judge or the D.A.

Ceelo is a sex freak, watch him on the voice when turns around and see a hot looking woman, it looks like he is about to foam at the mouth and then he talks about how hot and sexy they are

"ENRAGED" his lawyer? Look TMZ, lawyers don't get enraged - it's all part of the act. Just as being an idiot is obviously a prerequisite of the copy writers job.

Wow ...    

Ceelo made himself look bad with his robe attire and chest showing at his arraignment. What the heck happened to people who do not dress appropriately for court? At least pretend you respect the system. FFS

Oh brother. She is just trying to bark like a big dog so Ceelo will think she actually earned some of the mega $$$ she is billing his azz. Hey Madam Lawyer , I GUARANTEE having the camera on Ceelo has not been a treat for us either!!!!
