  • Man jailed 6 months for..yawning

    http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/weird...-52880012.html

    Williams, 33, attended his cousin's July hearing at Will County Courthouse in Joliet. His cousin, Jason Mayfield, pled guilty to a felony drug charge. As the judge sentenced Mayfield to two years probation, Williams let out a yawn, an involuntary faux pas in such a formal setting.
    Circuit Judge Daniel Rozak thought the yawn was criminal and sentenced Williams to six months in jail, the maximum penalty for contempt of court without a jury trial.
    Power trip much?

            Ironically, no, the guy who got caught with drugs only got probation.

            Apparently yawning is a much more severe crime.

                  The problems with this country's judicial system amaze me.

                      there's a difference between having the power and having the right to punish somebody like that. it was either racism or ageism. i didn't see any other articles with more information about what happened and if the guy was provoking the judge. but if he was really a problem then they could have just asked him to leave. 6 months of jail? i'd probably just wait outside and beat the judge down in the parking lot and get a lesser sentence.

                            I find it hard to believe there is absolutely no way he can appeal this. I wonder if he can be pardoned or something like that?

                              I can maybe see getting kicked out, only if it was one of those terribly loud yawns. But I know that, according to dumblaws.com, it is illegal to burp or sneeze in a church service in Omaha, NE.
