A judge in Cleveland ordered two pieces of tape to be placed over a defendant's mouth because he would not stop talking during sentencing Tuesday.

During the sentencing for 32-year-old Franklyn Williams, convicted for three armed robberies, Judge John Russo ordered him to be silent multiple times.

Williams kept talking, even as his attorney stood to speak to the court.

Williams was quickly surrounded by several deputies, who ensured that he did not resist as one of them applied a piece of duct tape across his mouth.

Billy Eichner promises new 'American Horror Story' will be "so insane"
Constance was Lange's character in season one, the next door neighbor of the Harmon family and the mother of Tate ( Evan Peters ). Taking this into account, it makes sense that the network wants to keep him onside for as long as possible.

According to Metro News, Williams continued to protest, saying: 'But you're not letting me tell you what's going on. He pleaded guilty the first time around, and was sentenced to 14 year behind bars, but won an appeal after a court determined he received inaccurate information about his eligibility for release.

During his trial, he allegedly cut off his ankle bracelet and slipped away to Nebraska before being rearrested, the site reported.

"Just put the tape on me man and get it over with", Williams said. "This judge should be disbarred", said a third commenter.

"I'm going to tape it, and then I'll unzip it when I want you to talk", Russo says.

Trump tweet on Muller probe "opinion not order": White House
Earlier this summer, Parscale tweeted that Trump should fire Sessions in order to bring the Mueller probe to an end. Trump has been more frustrated since headlines about his former attorney Michael Cohen emerged last week.

Later, the frustrated judge asked: "Does the comment, 'quit talking, ' do you understand that?"

Judge Russo says he was forced to take extreme measures to keep a clear record and maintain courtroom decorum. "I'm getting no justice, this is not a fair trial". Williams was convicted last December in an armed robbery case. "Just zip it, you will get a chance to talk, I'm going to give you a chance to talk".

After the incident, Williams spoke to reporters, and said he had a reason why he wouldn't be quiet.

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

Some have queried whether gagging the defendant was allowed in court, but Russo claims it was completely legal for him to gag the defendant and found previous cases to support his actions.
