The judge than filed a contempt of court on the 8th of August. Can this be done while an appeal has been filed? The charge was 665.2(3) Description is contempt. Sentence is purge jail (what does this mean?) The duration is 10 days. If the 10 days are spent in jail can they file again at a later date for another contempt?
