    A week after he launched into a profanity-laden tirade in Broward County bond court, he made a second appearance to apologize to Judge John Hurley.

    Christopher Colon, 27, was sentenced to 364 days in jail on June 12 after he cursed at Judge Hurley with multiple usages of the f-word and references to a sex act. But Friday, when Colon again came before Judge Hurley, he was anything but the boisterous, profanity filled defendant.

    “Your honor, I apologize real bad, and I’m asking for you to accept my apology, please your honor,” Colon said, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    Judge Hurley, who never lost his cool during Colon’s tirade last week, accepted the apology, dropped the sentence to time-served, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

    While Colon was off-the-hook for the 364 day sentence for contempt of court, he’s not leaving jail anytime soon. In his initial hearing, Hurley ruled that Colon should be held without bond a charge of aggravated battery of a pregnant victim.

    That order still stands, meaning Colon will remain in the Broward County Jail.
