The harsh hand of the law may have been too harsh this time.

A Florida judge is getting heat for her decision to sent a domestic violence victim to jail for failing to show up to court!

The woman reportedly failed to show up at the July trial of her husband, in which she was supposed to testify.

When Seminole County Judge Jerri Collins asked the sobbing woman why she was a no show, the alleged victim said she had "anxiety" and was "not in a good place" at the time of the July hearing.

Kelly Rutherford with kids

This is just a heartbreaking story.

We've been following the controversial custody battle between Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband Daniel Giersch — but now, the Gossip Girl alum is revealing shocking new details in Vanity Fair's November issue.

The lengthy article takes a look inside Rutherford's fight to get her children Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6, back on American soil since she first filed for divorce in 2008, when she was three months pregnant with their second child.

The 46-year-old actress shared:

"Daniel was subtly verbally abusive. He was trying to alienate me from everyone in my life—my parents, my brother. I didn't want any money from Daniel. I didn't want any money from Daniel. I wanted us both to be great parents. I wasn't asking for full custody … Daniel made me go through a custody evaluation while I was pregnant. He sued me like he'd sued Google. He served me custody papers right up until I went into labor."

The 41-year-old wealthy German businessman met and married Kelly in 2006 in El Lay. It wasn't long before things went south:

Someone let Prince William know that he can now go commando while he's home!

In a recent move to increase the security and privacy of Will and Kate Middleton, the United Kingdom's secretary of state issued a no-fly zone over their sprawling mansion 110 miles north of London.

Considering the two are constantly harassed by the paparazzi and news outlets, we can't say we're surprised that a major U.K. official decided to beef up security — the couple deserves some solace from the madness once in a while!

In the curt and all business statement regarding the decision (it goes into effect November 1), the official explained:

"The Secretary of State has decided that it is necessary in the public interest to restrict flying in the vicinity of Anmer Hall, Norfolk, having regard to the security considerations associated with this location by reason of it being the residence of members of the Royal Family."

Makes sense to us! Especially since the couple have two young babies in the house… you can't take chances when there are kiddos involved!

Enjoy your more secure pad, Kate and Will!

Apparently, the young man got so high that he said he lost the ability to feel his hands and couldn't get out of the fetal position on the floor!

Luckily for the stoner, despite the fact that the cops found weed and drug paraphernalia in his car, he has yet to be charged with a crime as he only alerted them out of his own precaution.

Stay safe, kids!
