Criminal screams at judge in courtroom not knowing he’s about to get taught a very heavy lesson
You don't mess with Judge Lucci.

Not all people are aware of how sentences are decided during court hearings. However, most of us know that it’s not proper to disrespect a judge – particularly if he’s the one handling your case.

Manson Bryant is very familiar with the Lake County Court of Common Pleas.

He has a long criminal history with his first arrest dating back to 1999 as a juvenile.

Sent to prison at least four times, Manson is also familiar with Judge Eugene Lucci.

In the last couple of years, eight of his cases have been assigned to this judge – and his most recent one was in Judge Eugene’s hands as well.

Manson was found guilty of several charges.

The list included aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, kidnapping and abduction. Prior to hearing his punishment, he expressed respect to the judge.

Unfortunately, his respect didn’t last long.

After hearing that he has been sentenced to 22 years in prison, Manson went mad.

He started yelling profanity towards the judge and everything was recorded in the cameras of the courtroom.

Initially, Judge Eugene thought that Manson was showing some remorse.

He was actually supposed to sentence him to 30 years in prison but the idea stopped him. However, Manson’s reaction made him change his mind again.

Judge Eugene said:

“Actually, actually … you know what? Remember when I said that you had some remorse? When I said that you had a certain amount of remorse, I was mistaken.”

Even after hearing that, Manson continued swearing and yelling.

And because of his behavior, the deputies had to remove him from the courtroom.

The judge explained:

“The defendant has shown me that he has no remorse whatsoever, and therefore the court determines that maximum imprisonment is needed. He poses the greatest likelihood of recidivism. I apparently thought that he was more remorseful than he was. He was just feeding me a line of bull.”

It wasn’t the first time Judge Eugene saw such aggressive behavior from Manson.

He also did the same thing to the judge when he sentenced him to 12 months in prison after pleading guilty to receiving stolen property.

Manson was on parole at the time he was arrested.

And because of his violation, he’ll need to complete his previous prison sentence. Only then will his 28-year sentence begin.

Manson’s behavior earned different reactions from people online.

One YouTube user said:

“This guys crimes have escalated and become more violent. Eventually, he was going to kill someone. Excellent call by the Judge!”

Another one commented:

“It’s nice to see some judges actually take their jobs seriously and work to protect the public from these thugs.”

There was also this person who said:

“He was holding it together in order to ‘earn’ a lesser sentence. Once he learned his charade didn’t work, his true self was on display.”

This person shared:
“That reaction explains why he is in jail to begin with. When your right to be a selfish is not necessarily more important than other people’s right to safety.”
