    Shut Yer Mouth: Man Gets 6 Months for Yawning

    Strict judge issues 6 months jail time for "loud and boisterous" yawn


    Make sure you get plenty of sleep before going to court.

    Clifton Williams didn't and he's been sentenced to six months in jail for yawning.

    "I was flabbergasted because I didn't realize a judge could do that," Williams' father, Clifton Williams Sr., told the Chicago Tribune. "It seems to me like a yawn is an involuntary action."

    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. Rozak's order said that Williams "raised his hands while at the same time making a loud yawning sound," causing a disrespectful interruption in court.

    So in a strange turn of events Mayfield, the felon, will be able to walk freely, while Williams, the yawner, will have to spend at least three weeks behind bars for his offending yawn. But it's not out of character for Rozak.

    Contempt of court charges are typically issued when a judge feels someone is challenging or ignoring the court's authority, e.g., yelling at a judge, ignoring subpoenas, appearing in court drunk, etc.

    But Rozak runs a tight ship. He has charged people who cuss in reaction to a sentencing and even jailed spectators whose cell phones interrupt proceedings. In fact, the Chicago Tribune found that Rozak has sentenced more spectators to jail for infractions involving cell phones than any other judge in Will County in the last decade.

    Of the 30 judges in the 12th Judicial Circuit, Rozak has brought more than a third of all the contempt charges in the last 10 years.

    "This is ridiculous -- you've got all these people shooting up kids, and here this boy yawns in court [and gets 6 months]. It's crazy," said Williams' 79-year-old grandmother.

    Another one said said LET KILL ALL THE LAWYER

    Kukutwa na madawa ya kulevya na kupiga mwayo mahakamani kipi kibaya jamani?

    Kumfunga jela haikuwa sahihi basi alibidi mahakama itoe order kwa serikali kwamba apewe matibabu kwa matatizo aliyonayo ya kupiga mwayo kama punda, ukiangalia cost analysis unaweza kuona ni nafuu zaidi kumpeleka hospital kwa matibabu kuliko jela.

    Halafu consideration nyingine ni recurrance factor kuwa, kama ni ugonjwa atafanya hivyo kila akiingia mahakamani na atafungwa kila mara at the expense of the taxpayer hivyo dawa rehab tu kuliko penal sanctions.

    au unasemaje mkuu.

    Hadith – Bukhari 4:509, Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: ‘Ha’, Satan will laugh at him.”
    Hadith – Bukhari 8:242, 8:245, Narrated Abu Huraira
    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if someone sneezes and then praises Allah, then it is obligatory on every Muslim who heard him, to say: May Allah be merciful to you (Yar-hamuka-l-lah). But as regards yawning, it is from Satan, so one must try one’s best to stop it, if one says ‘Ha’ when yawning, Satan will laugh at him.”
    Hadith – Muslim, Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri
    Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: When one of you yawns, he should try to restrain it with the help of his hand since it is the Satan that enters therein.
    Hadith – Mishkat, Narrated AbuHurayrah , transmitted by Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.
    Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, Yawning in prayer is an act of Shaytan, so when one of you yawns he should restrain it as much as possible. In another version it the word are: He should place his hand upon his mouth.

    Nchi kama marekani inawezekana kumpeleka kwenye matibabu ni gharama kubwa sana ukilinganisha na kumpeleka lupango.

    Inawezekana kweli jamaa ana matatizo ya kushindwa kujizuiya, lakini utafanyaje na sheria wanasema ni msumeno. As long as washaeleza kuwa Hakimu akisha ingia na kukaa kwenye kiti chake hakuna ruhusa hata ya kupiga chafya... Labda kwa ruhsa maalum. Anyway ana haki ya kukata rufaa...!
    Hii ingetokea nchi zingine tusinge lala kwa makelele ya kukiuka haki za binadamu...!
