Judge orders convict to have mouth taped shut over interruptions

A judge in OH ordered deputies to tape a defendant's mouth shut during sentencing on July 31.

In the end, Williams, who was convicted of aggravated robbery, kidnapping, theft, misuse of credit cards and having weapons under a disability, was handed a 24-year prison sentence.

Video shot and edited by Fox 8 shows Williams speaking in court while Judge John Russo repeatedly scolds him for talking and tells him to be quiet.

The judge noted that the court stenographer would not be able to keep up with the hearing if Williams continued to interrupt and argue over him and his attorneys.

Frustrated with the situation, the judge eventually ordered that Williams have his mouth taped shut.

Russo ordered his deputies to place a piece of red tape over Williams's mouth.

But Williams continued to protest, saying: 'But youre not letting me tell you what's going on.

Six officers surround Williams with one issuing a threat before putting the tape on his mouth.

He provided no evidence that the team led by Mueller, a Republican appointed by Republicans, is biased against him. He asked Manafort to stand up and face the jury, calling him "a good man" and a talented political consultant.

During his retrial in December, he cut off his ankle monitor and fled to Nebraska.

In court on Tuesday, prosecutors played his phone calls with family to prove that not only did Williams not lose his memory, he also researched on his cell the best ways to beat criminal charges. "You got it?" the judge said.

Russo says he had the right to order this, something Williams clearly never expected. Judge John Russo sentenced for armed robberies and more.

Russo said in court that he had a right to order the gag placed on Williams.

"Does the comment, 'quit talking, ' do you understand that?" But we can't do it at the same time or yelling over each other.

"Zip it until I give you a chance to talk", the judge said. I don't even remember me going to a trial. The armed robber was granted an appeal after it was found that Williams was misinformed about the details of his first prison sentence.

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