CLEVELAND-- 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.
Russo handled the situation by ordering deputies to tape the defendant's mouth shut.
