No Early Release For Gay-Basher Kathryn Knott

Earlier this month convicted gay-basher Kathryn Knott petitioned for early release from prison because she’s been such a good girl while behind bars. That’s not gonna happen. Philadelphia Gay News reports:

Knott’s attorney, Bill Brennan, told PGN he submitted to the court attestations from Riverside Correctional Facility, where Knott has been housed since her Feb. 8 sentencing, that she has been an “exemplary inmate.”

“She’s had no write-ups, which you can get if you’re in a fight, or insolent or insubordinate or don’t follow directions,” Brennan said. “She’s been performing her duties — cleaning toilets — and has been a model inmate. Inmates are given this reward, if you will, where the minimum sentence is slightly reduced and they have the opportunity to be released slightly early with ‘earned time, good time.'”

Common Pleas Court Judge Roxanne Covington, who oversaw Knott’s December trial, denied the request without comment.

Once released Knott must spend two years on probation. During that time she will be barred from Center City, Philadelphia’s busiest gayborhood. And of course there’s that civil lawsuit filed by her victims.

  • Good. Hope she gets pissed off about this and doesn’t behave as well as she has so far, and ends up spending more time.

    Guess Daddy can’t fix this anymore. Thank goodness for social media.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    YAY! Now, how do we get that Stanford rapist to serve some real time in prison.

          Soooo stealing this one. Many thanks.

  • Derrick Johns

    Well, maybe she will be bisexual when she comes out of jail. But some bisexuals aren’t Gay-friendly.

    I don’t care what happens to this bitch. What’s the next news story, Joe?

  • AtticusP

    Even Senator Mitch McConnell agrees…

        I miss Jon Stewart!

        This whole circus that we Americans refer to as a “presidential election” is just not the same without this man.

        • Christopher

          I agree!

          Jon added something extra to the mix. He could make us laugh at the terrifying. Make us weep for the absurd. And he always made us feel like we were involved in something bigger than ourselves. Quite frankly, he made us care when many of us would otherwise be apathetic.

          I am drinking vodka (no of course it’s not 5 yet. That’s the Episcopalian rule) can you say the same?.

          • oikos

            Vodka is on my to do list right after I have a beer.

            Ah now, gin. Love to cook with it and the blessed juniper berries. But as a 365 9-5 beverage I find it gives me the sadz.

            Hon, I’m on four primary medications:

            (1) Blood pressure

            Lol.

            Look, at my age and given what I’ve been through, if I can stay sober enough to take my meds timely, I’m doin’ okay.

          • Christopher

            I’ve already told the hubby, that if Hair Fuhrer wins the election, then I may never be sober again.

            Two parts gin, one part vermouth. That’s how a gentleman does it.

            When I depart from that rule, I throw up.

          • Robincho

            I don’t STOP throwing up until noon…

          • Ginger Snap

            I do love a G&T in-between a few Martini’s.

          • Robincho

            Possibly because only every fourth year contains 366? I’m just speculatin’…

          • barracks9

            For me, vodka is for drinking. Gin is for getting drunk.

          • another_steve

            I like to think of it like this, b9: Gin is for the attaining of mystical union with ultimate reality and being.

            Particularly Beefeater gin. The gods seem to favor it.

          • Nic Peterson

            Old Tom Ransom or Beehive Barrel Aged are my go to brands for mixing. The latter is hard to find outside of Utah. Adding Luxardo, lime and green chartreuse in equal parts will deliver nectar of the gods. Hendricks is my martini maker of choice.

          • another_steve

            When the bartender says, “sorry, we don’t stock Beefeater,” I say, “Okay, Hendricks then.”

          • shellback

            Mr. Humphries once said of gin:
            One is alright.
            Two, at the most.
            Three, under the table.
            Four, under the host.

            My distant (like 5 or 6 “greats”) grandfather Ebenezer owned a gin distillery in CT during the early/mid 18th century. Gin had always been my favorite before learning this, and now it’s a family tradition that I feel obliged to observe frequently.

    Princess has KNOTT yet learned anything. First, you turn done the plea deal which the other defendants accepted and put the state through the cost of a trial. Second, after you are found guilty and sentenced you get a new lawyer and request a re-sentencing hearing. Now, you are seeking to be released before the minimum time of your sentence. You are in for a big surprise because the judge hearing the civil lawsuit against you will be aware of all your actions.

      She has barely completed 4 months of that sentence, less than half of what she could wind up serving if the court deems it, and already she thinks she should be released?

      What next? Filing for a reduction of her probation once she is released and counter-suing the victims for having the unmitigated gall to sue her?

    From Philly Mag:

    Other members of the group were said to have then restrained Hesse’s arms while he was hit repeatedly, and Knott punched him in the face and called him a “faggot.”

    Haught was rendered unconscious and transported to Hahnemann University Hospital where emergency surgery was performed. He stayed in the hospital for five days after the attack. The lawsuit states that Haught suffered a fractured jaw bone and orbital bone, and permanent facial scarring, in addition to other injuries. His jaw was wired shut for eight weeks.

            How much fun could it have been, TuuxKabin, ¿si lo recuerdes bien?

          • TuuxKabin

            Ay Phillip! So long I’ve been wondering about you. So happy to see you again. I missed you. Really.

            Sí. Recuerdo. Era demasiado hermosa para olvidar.

            And I didn’t do a lot of ‘bad’ trips. Mostly pot, good LSD the first few months of that summer when it was still almost pure. Mescalin & Peyote when we could get it.

            The worse ‘bummer’ was Altamont, and I got out of there before murder and mayhem broke out.

            The best trip(s): Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company (I learned what ‘holding meant), Otis Redding, BB King, Johnny Winters, Jefferson Airplane, Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Aretha Franklin with Ray Charles and so many other Fillmore Auditorium. Avalon Ballroom and Carousel Ballroom concerts. Later on ‘The Cockettes’ (let them eat cock) and Angels of Light.

            I just got off a Rolling Stones jag here at home to get this place cleaned. I know it’s only rock n’ roll, but I like it!

            So good to see you again.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            ¡También te extrañé a ti, y a pocos otros aquí! Yo sé que tú bien entiendes, lo que decía yo de “recordar bien” el pasado, no era más que broma….

            The number and quality of legendary concerts and events you’ve attended is almost unbelievable (not to say I don’t believe you, because obviously I do). I’ve heard and seen recordings of a few of those concerts you mentioned, but I think those representations hardly scratch the surface of the times, the people, and the culture–the Zeitgeist–that drove your generation, and consequently, mine.

          • TuuxKabin

            Bueno pues . . . I like the Zeitgeist comment, it was like that. And thank you for your acknowledgement to your/us elders. Ja ja.

            I was still working during that summer so I could afford to go to every concert possible. Also, one of the attractions was the free poster for the following week’s concerts. They became collector items. Once I turned on, tuned in and dropped out I counted on the free concerts. And other ‘freebies’.

            So, here it is, another summer of . . . calamity?

            Hope you’re doing well. I forget schnauzer’s name, but please give him a scratch behind the ears from me/us. We just received pictures of Sage, our avatar, she’s doing well, a lil’ long in the tooth, but still with that same cute face.

            Hope to see you here, at Joe’s Place, some more.

            ¡Buenas tardes, TuuxKabin! Pharaoh is his name, “the Destroyer of Vermin,” jnnj penu hedjet, in Middle Egyptian. ¿Ahora te recuerdas, no?

            How old is Sage now? Pharaoh turned 11 in April!

            For whatever it’s worth, today’s society is built on the foundations laid down by my generation and yours, and of course, those who went before yours. (Felicidades, eh?) The history you experienced must not be lost, especially because of its heightened relevance to our community, today. Having these conversations, and listening to the stories of the elders, like yours, is absolutely imperative to the continued growth and development of gay culture and society and community–whatever that means. And to me, that means your stories are part of my personal identity.

            Also, since knowledge is power, thanks once again to you and Joe (and of course to everyone else here) for making us all smarter and more powerful!!

          • TuuxKabin

            Pharaoh, of course! I was doing a geographical mental scan of the mediterranean countries, free associating regions, trying to remember his name. Emperor came to mind, but I knew it’s not that.

            Sage probably turned nine last October or November. We found her in January, 2007, in the rain, huddled and shivering under some shrubbery in our local park in Merida. The vet said she was about 3 months old at the time.

            You write, “today’s society is built on the foundations laid down by my generation and yours”, Felicidades, claro que si.

            Ages ago, a well known/published astrologer/psychic told me I have a sense of responsibility to the elderly. I never gave it much thought until 10 years later when I started work in a long term care facility, i.e. nursing home. I worked in various departments learning each dynamic to the care and service provided to our residences. I ended up retiring from there 30 years later.

            I was also a volunteer for a local LGBTQ service provider agency, by the name of SAGE, Senior Advocacy in a Gay Environment, (hence, SAGE, our dog, “sabio,”she’s a very wise one). I was a friendly visitor, visiting our elders, many of them fairly shut in without much social contact. I scored really well and Mort, my client, was a well off retired NYC attorney, lived in the townhouse he owned and paid off, had a cabin in CT where we would go every third weekend for a day or two. My other client was a retired chef, from SC, living in Harlem, amputee, confined in his apartment. He had more of a support group than Mort. Not surprising to me. I found inner-city minorities had more of a social circle than not.

            I learned our elders, in all communities and cultures are our history books. They tell us their experiences, much like you encourage me to do, and often have a good time relaying their experiences. I did that for about 10 or 12 years. My clients died and I took leave.

            I just noticed I’ve taken up a lot of space here. I DO appreciate your ability to draw me out and get me gabbin’! I have the impression (shoot me down if wrong) your experience and studies have made you somewhat of a journalistic interviewer, apart from your experience as an attorney. From your ‘leading’ questions (which I appreciate) you’ve always made me open up.

            For now I’ll shut up. Thank you for the engaging comments Phillip! Bob and I are coming off a couple of days of mourning. A friend of 43 years died Monday, we buried her yesterday. She was a champion at the NYC District 37 Council for Labor and Union organizing. There was a charter bus of co-workers at the funeral and it was a very moving tribute and honor to be with them. So I’m feeling a bit talkative, spilling my guts, as her identical twin sister did when we sat with her to offer our condolences. Grief can be a good catharsis.

            I’m glad you ‘returned’ to JMG, hope you stay around.

            Saludos. Tu amigo, David/TuuxKabin.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Thx for the lovely and very interesting post. So sorry about your friend.

            Yes, I’ve heard of SAGE, but thanks for reminding me about it!

          • djcoastermark

            Like I said earlier, 49 years ago, 49 lives this week. Somehow something good WILL come of this.

          • TuuxKabin

            Yes you did and I’ve thought of that ever since. You mentioned something in relation to SF, correct? The 49ers, 49 mile drive in not so far away Carmel, SF is 49 square miles. Coming from SF, your comment stuck with me, and gave me hope.

          • djcoastermark

            as did with my hubby who for many years lived in SF. In fact he was the one that pointed it out to me as soon as I mentioned 49 years ago.

          • TuuxKabin

            There’s something definitely going on. A dear friend, after most of the year, died this morning. A release from her suffering and we will always have her with us because we will forever remember her.

          • djcoastermark

            I shed a few tears for her. what an honor to remember her this way.

          • TuuxKabin

            Thank you dj. It was an honor knowing her and her identical sister. They were a double barrel of good things for the 44 years we had together as friends. At least we still have her sister, and her children.

      This is the first time since the year of my birth that the Full Moon and the Summer Solstice occurred on the same day.

      Happy Litha!

  • Schlukitz

    Girlfriend….

  • What’s that saying? The Wheels of Justice grind slowly, but they grind to a fine powder?

    • ECarpenter

      She’s still getting off very lightly. This time those wheels didn’t grind very much.

    • TuuxKabin

      I hope she’s grinding her bicuspids to a fine powder.

  • Map

    Well I hope she’s watching this seasons”Orange is the new Black

  • TheManicMechanic

    Why don’t you rott, Knott. Cvnt.

  • bkmn

    If I was working in that jail I would be very tempted to misspell her last name and make sure it was embossed on her prison jumper.

  • Octavio

    No matter how bad the news, there’s always something that will brighten my day.Thanks Joe. 🙂

    P.S. great photo.

  • tcinsf

    She should get double time for drinking flavored whiskey.

  • James

    Good. Here’s hoping she violates her probation and gets locked right back up again.

  • Gigi

    Great news. This made my day!

  • royinhell

    Too bad “good behavior” didn’t apply to her pre-jail life.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    This is most pleasing.

    ….that is all.

    • Reality.Bites

      I wanted an epic smack-down too.

  • nowhereman

    I don’t remember why her accomplices got off, but I hope they get taken to the cleaners with a lawsuit settlement that they will be paying off for the rest of their lives–a constant reminder.

    • Reality.Bites

      Plea bargain – guilty plea and testimony (I think but not sure about testimony) in exchange for no time in jail.

      • Plus probation for them and community service.

        Knott and her attorneys and her daddy-with-influence thought they could get an innocent verdict from a jury trial. They were wrong. Then after the verdict, they tried to file an appeal claiming it wasn’t fair that Knott would have to go to jail as part of her sentencing and that she couldn’t have a mulligan at that initial plea deal which suddenly seemed sweet. (Well, sweeter certainly than jail…)

      Was Butch like that? Hope not. Our Norma was. Bitch. Terrible beauty but a bitch.

      • j.martindale

        No. A sweet disposition. He was a one man cat, though. I got a Maine Coon to keep him company while we traveled. He never forgave me, hated the Coon, and became my husband’s cat thereafter.

        • TuuxKabin

          Funny thing, Norma was a Maine Coon, her lil’ sister Itty Rodham Bitty was too, tho not related. IRB came after Norma and Norma of course took matters into her own hands. Made life miserable for all of us. Norma was a one cat cat, her own. She’s the only cat I’ve had that could make me cry. When I told my therapist about her she asked me, “have you tried being nice to the bitch?”

          • j.martindale

            Maine Coons must all be crazy. Ours was feral. She was raised in a house of a vet with dozens of other animals–probably terribly neglected. Got her at about 10 months. I didn’t realize she was feral until I brought her home and took her out of her carrier. She tore me up, scratched my body top to bottom. It took years before she trusted us to pet her. Most neurotic animal I ever owned.

          • TuuxKabin

            Well that’s a negligent vet, damn. Norma wasn’t physically abusive, she just had a bad attitude. Like ‘Carrie’, without successfully burning the house down. We’re pet free now. Easier.

  • boatboy_srq

    1) Assault (and hate crime) resulting in serious bodily harm doesn’t merit early release for “good behavior.”
    2) If a prison sentence is what it takes for her to behave and do her chores (with or without whining), that doesn’t say.much for her parents’ ability to raise offspring.
    3) After 6/12, any remotely aware counsel would have withdrawn that motion and told his/her client to suck it up.

  • BostonBud

    How do I “really like” this post?

  • twb6yz

    In Virginia there is no time off for good behavior unless the sentence is in excess of one year. This is why a lot of people are sentenced to a year and one day.

  • Oh Kathryn, by now you should have realized one nights gleeful actions of beating up two innocent gay men have fucked the rest of your life. Not only did you forever change those two men’s lives, you changed yours as well. From the lap of privilege to the ranks of the reviled, your moment of hate will follow you like an albatross the rest of your days, as it should.

  • fierce_urgency_of_whenever

    Fucking c*nt needs to serve every second of her sentence.

  • dwieboldt

    Keep this bitch of the streets. She will never learn the lesson.

    • Robert

      Bitch of the Streets…. sounds like a new TV drama. LOL…

  • Stubenville

    Pity.

    /sarcasm

  • Djurisk

    Not to Knott. Just wait, soon you can follow your true ambitions…

  • coram nobis

    “Your honor, what her attorney meant to say was that she needs more Early Times.”

  • Baby Dave

    What the fuck is she complaining about?

    I’ve worked in a women’s prison, and let me tell you, its a fucking country club compared to a men’s prison. She has absolutely nothing to complain about.

    Sure, she’s going o be bored as hell for the time she’s in, but she isn’t going to be violently murdered or raped the way she would be in a maximum security men’s facility.

  • Mister Don

    Think of the liquor endorsements waiting for her!
