An Ohio man recently learned the importance of order in the courts.
A jury at the Lake County Court of Common Pleas recently found Manson Bryant, 32, guilty of charges including aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and abduction, according to local outlet WOIO.
Once Bryant returned to court on March 1 to face his punishment from Judge Eugene Lucci, he was at first respectful. But when Lucci sentenced him to 22 years in prison, Bryant lashed out in an expletive-laden diatribe.
“Twenty-two years? Man, f-ck your courtroom, you racist ass b-tch," Bryant yelled, according to WOIO. "F*ck your courtroom, man. You racist as f-ck. Twenty-two f-cking years? Racist ass b-tch. You ain’t sh-t.”
As a result, Lucci decided to add six more years to Bryant’s sentence.
“Actually, actually ... you know what," said Lucci. ”Remember when I said that you had some remorse? When I said that you had a certain amount of remorse, I was mistaken."
“F-ck your courtroom and suck my d-ck,” Bryant continued.
“The court determines that maximum imprisonment is needed," Lucci said. “So that’s 28 years.”
Daniel Williams, Bryant's attorney, said his client had a “regrettable” reaction.
"I would only comment that sentencing hearings can be emotional for all involved. Mr. Bryant received a significant sentence, and had an emotional and regrettable reaction to it,” he said, according to Fox 8 Cleveland. He was otherwise very composed throughout the course of his trial, even when the verdict was rendered. He intends to appeal the verdict and sentence, and continues to remain hopeful.
