*Officials in Cleveland are so hyped about today’s victory parade for their NBA Champion Cavaliers that even citizens accused of crimes are being excused from court to attend the festivities.
Judge Ronald B. Adrine, presiding judge of the court’s general division, sent out a press release announcing a free pass given to defendants for June 22.
