Judge sentences man to 6 months for yawning in court



Illinois Circuit Judge Daniel Rozak sentenced Clifton Williams to 6 months in jail for yawning in court. Rozak's contempt order stated that Williams "raised his hands while at the same time making a loud yawning sound," which was both disrespectful and disruptive.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Rozak, one of 30 judges in the the 12th Judicial Circuit, personally issues over a third of the contempt charges and has thrown more people in jail for ringing cell phones than "any other judge in Will County in the last decade."

could you imagine if he let out a fart... they could have gave him the death sentence for that.


i was sitting in class in college and the one kid in my class was yawning but no noise or arms lifting. then the teacher just flips out on him. i had a pretty hard time not laughing because the kid was a douche anyways.
