Man says judge penalized him for ‘Pimp Daddy’ tattoo

CARSON CITY — The Nevada Supreme Court today rejected the appeal of a man who argued that his “Pimp Daddy” tattoo prompted a judge to slap him with more time than he deserved.

Michael C. Wright, who pleaded guilty to failure to register as a sex offender in Winnemucca, had asked that his 12- to 34-month sentence run at the same time as two other sentences, according to court records.

District Court Judge Michael Montero, instead, ordered the sentence to run consecutively.

“The record does not support Wright’s contention that the district court penalized him for his tattoos,” the Supreme Court ruling said.
