    Don't they realize just how expensive it is to miss work, drive who knows how far, the cost of hotels (if needed), meals, and for what?

    People lose jobs over this sort of nonsense.

      They are awful people, those judges who do such things.

      Not all are like that.  I've known compassionate judges.  

      But these bad ones are often incompetent, disorganized or just plain mean, or all of the above.
