The judge had to call for a recess

Earlier this month in Lexington, Kentucky, a sentencing hearing was held for Trey Relford, who has been convicted of involvement in the robbery and death of 22-year-old Salahuddin Jitmoud in 2015. Salahuddin's father addressed the courtroom during the sentencing, but his remarks surprised everyone.

He said he forgave Relford for his role in the crime. "I'm angry at the devil, who is misguiding you," he said, "I'm not angry at you. I forgive you." Relford tearfully responded, "I'm sorry about what happened that day." Jitmoud then embraced Relford in the middle of the courtroom, and the event was so emotional that the judge had to call a recess.
