A judge ordered a convict appearing in his court to have his mouth gagged with duct tape when he refused to stop interrupting.

Judge John Russo ordered that Franklyn Williams's mouth to be taped over to prevent him from speaking after warning him to be silent at least 12 times over the course of 30 minutes.

Williams, 32, was being sentenced for armed robbery at the time and talked almost continuously during the hearing.

Judge Russo told the accused, who was dressed in an orange suit and was sitting next to his lawyer: "I'm going to hear from your lawyers and that means zip it."

A frustrated Ohio judge ordered police officers to gag the mouth of a convicted man with tape after warning him 12 times, to no avail, to stop interrupting. Franklyn Williams, 32, appeared in court for sentencing after being convicted of aggravated robbery, kidnapping and theft.

When Williams interjected with "That means you are not letting me tell what's going on", the judge said: "That means zip it, right now, does that make sense?"

As Williams said "I'm not being allowed to speak how I need to speak" officers in the courtroom ripped off a 15in-long piece of red duct tape and placed it over his mouth.

Judge Russo later told Fox News: "I will say that over my time handling his four cases, Mr Williams, I know for a fact, was someone who liked to speak.

"Everybody has the opportunity to make a record with my court reporter but we can't do it at the same time, we can't do it yelling over each other.

Williams was eventually sentenced to 24 years in jail for aggravated robbery, kidnapping and theft.

But Williams absconded during the December trial, cutting off the electronic tag monitor on his leg and fleeing to Nebraska from where he had to be extradited.
