29675 ratings | 4598093 views
It was an unusual sight in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday. Franklyn Williams, 32, is accused of three armed robberies in Richmond Heights and Euclid. During his sentencing hearing, Williams would not stop talking, despite more than a dozen warnings from Judge John Russo over the course of about 30 minutes. Williams even interrupted his own attorneys.

Who cares if he can still talk. The best part is when they get to take it off. I wish we got to see that. I bet half that mustache came off with the tape.

I can understand the judge's point of view. He needs this man to listen but, he ain't gonna let the judge talk...

I'm a CONSERVATIVE and even I know this is WRONG. The judge should have had him REMOVED from his courtroom instead. It's Decisions like this that makes the justice System look so bad. The Judge needs to LEARN some Disapline. If a person is being disruptive in the courtroom then you have him or her removed. I'm sure the JUDICIAL CONDUCT BOARD was happy as a pig in poop to see this Judges STUPIDITY.

What is wrong with u folks to THINK IT'S okay to treat someone like THAT. HE was guilty before HE even got there. It's sad we live I in a society that WE allow the justice system to treat us any kind of way. We NEED OUR own system in play.I say we get our OWN communities popping and police that ish ourselves. ..l I...smfh

Judges are not gods which they believe they are. Judges need to be put in there place or we will all regret it. Judges are not above the constitution. Everyone of these motherraping whores should hang yesterday.

So many people are here laughing at this shit when it's dead wrong. The proper way to handle that situation is to escort him out of the court room. Not tape his mouth like he's an animal. What if this guy has a mental health problem? This judge is the typical power tripping piece of shit. Then you wonder why our system is so fucked up. That judge is a racist white trash. All you people that condone that shit are the same people that get happy and excited about a cop killing a black or Hispanic person.

It's amazing how quickly this Judge allowed his intellectual conceit to get in the way of the very reason we empower our Judges' to administer our Laws. Once you allow yourself to become out of control the way this Judge did, his ignorance immediately undermined every reason we empowered him to administer our Laws. Sad.

Friday, Williams walked into court for sentencing, and while he didn’t disrupt the proceedings, he spoke for 12 minutes, and he kept referring to the duct tape. He said, "I want the world to know I am not an animal, contrary to what people may think. I am a man." And he added, “Saying no duct tape. Freedom of speech. Your honor, I ask today, your honor, that I receive the lightest sentence that you can give me." The mother of Williams also spoke up and said he deserved a break because of the duct tape. She told the judge, "My son has suffered enough." But consider, missing from this courtroom, the victims. Cuyahoga County prosecutors say the victims will never get over what happened including a 75-year-old man. And missing from what Franklyn Williams said at the podium, the victims. For all he said, he didn't talk about the victims.
