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.”

Well, at least I heard the beds in prison are nice and comfy, especially when a skinhead named Roscoe is spooning you.
