Story: WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - A judge known for creative sentencing has ordered three Spanish-speaking men to learn English or go to jail.


The men, Luis Reyes, Ricardo Dominguez and Rafael Guzman-Mateo, plus a fourth defendant, Kelvin Reyes-Rosario, all needed translators when they pleaded guilty Tuesday.

Do you think we are going to supply you with a translator all of your life?" the judge asked them.

Is this racist? Is this a legal? You tell me. Here is the link to the story:msnbc
