Ohio judge orders chatty defendant's mouth taped for sentencing

An Ohio judge, fed up with the disruptive behavior of a convict in his courtroom, ordered bailiffs to tape the man's mouth shut, leaving him pleading his case through red duct tape.

Williams was sentenced to prison for aggravated robbery, kidnapping and misuse of credit cards, according to the Cuyahoga County Clerk of Court's online records.

After about a dozen warnings, Russo grew exhausted of the back-and-forth with Williams. He not only kept interrupting the judge, but also his own lawyer.

"You tryna take my life, and you not letting me tell you what's going on", Williams clapped back in rebuttal.

His trial began late a year ago, but hit a snag when he cut his ankle bracelet.

"That means zip it", said the judge.

When Williams continued to defy the judge's orders, Russo ordered his mouth to be taped shut. "I am going to give you a chance to talk", Russo added, before warning the defendant: "If I have to, I will gag you in one second".

"The comment "quit talking" do you understand that?"

Video filmed inside the court shows Williams speaking as Ruso repeatedly tells him to be quiet, Fox8 reports.

After warning Williams multiple times, Judge John Russo chose to take action, reported Fox 8. But we can't do it at the same time or yelling over each other.

"I want to make it real clear, if you spit on, attempt to bite, or injure any of my deputies, we're going to have a bad day", Jude Russo warns.

"I will say knowing Mr. Williams due to my handling of his four cases, Mr. Williams was someone who liked to speak".

He was eventually sentenced to 24 years jail.

After the incident, Williams spoke to reporters, and said he had a reason why he wouldn't be quiet. "I gave him an opportunity to speak at the appropriate time". Williams was granted an appeal after a court found he was misinformed about when he would be eligible for release.

In any other circumstance, Williams would be held in contempt of court.
