Defendant Ordered to Tape Mouth Shut by Judge

The American Bar Association Journal published an article last month where a Pennsylvania Judge ordered the defendant to tape his mouth shut.  The defendant was repeatedly interrupting the jury selection process during the trial.  Read the full article here.

I wonder if that created more sympathy for the defendant or less sympathy for the defendant to the jury.
