A judge ordered the mouth of a criminal defendant taped shut at a probation-violation hearing. Nicklas Frasure, 23, made repeated outbursts and ignored the judge’s continued orders to remain silent. So the judge ordered bailiffs to silence Frasure–and the bailiffs complied. They taped Frasure’s mouth shut with duct tape. Oh my.
At the end of the hearing, the judge ordered Frasure placed into the custody of the Department of Correction in a mental-health facility in Boise.
