A community activist was jailed Wednesday for 45 days by an Adams County 
judge for wearing a T-shirt in court with a photograph of executed killer Stanley 
"Tookie" Williams and the word "redemption." 

Shareef Aleem, 37, was found in contempt March 1 for wearing the shirt during 
his trial on charges he assaulted a police officer. 

Aleem apparently refused Judge Katherine Delgado's order to remove the shirt, 
citing his First Amendment rights.
