This story is so strange, that, unless you watch the video, you would say, no way, that would never happen. Well, it happened, and right here in Michigan.

 

According to MLive, 21-year old Brian Earl Taylor was appearing before a judge, Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Darlene O'Brien, convicted of unlawful imprisonment and carrying a concealed weapon. The judge asked if there was anything he wanted to say before she pronounced sentence, and this is what happened.

 

 

What did judge O'Brien say? She said Taylor was "a talented young man" and then sentenced him to two years for the concealed weapon charge and up to 15 years for unlawful imprisonment.

The singing didn't pay off.
