Judge Calls Security Incident "Isolated Incident"

  A Tyler judge has been assured "a security lapse in her courtroom" was an isolated incident.
  Judge Cynthia Kent says Friday, family and friends of a defendant stormed out of her courtroom after a prison sentence was imposed. As a precaution against further problems, she says she called for extra security; but that security never arrived.
  Judge Kent then wrote a public letter expressing that she was upset the additional personell had not been sent. The judge met with Sheriff J.B. Smith today to discuss the situation. Judge Kent told KLTV she is satisfied with their explanation; and has confidence her courtroom is secure.
