Listen Fail or Duct Tape Win?

From the TC Palm:

A Port St. Lucie man accused in October 2008 of binding a woman’s hands and taping her mouth shut “so she would listen,” was sentenced Thursday to 90 days in the St. Lucie County Jail, a year of community control and a year of probation.

Kevin John Franco, 34, pleaded no contest in February to charges of felony false imprisonment, misdemeanor battery and tampering with a witness. In levying the sentence, Circuit Judge Dan Vaughn gave Franco credit for 31 days he’s already spent in jail.

According to an arrest affidavit, the woman said she was sleeping in her bed when she woke up to find Franco on top of her, binding her hands with heavy-duty plastic ties and putting duct tape on her mouth.“Yes, I tied her hands and I taped her mouth closed,” the report states Franco told officers, “but only so she would listen.”

I wish I could use duct tape to shut up other students sometimes when they ask ridiculous questions or act like gunners. Happy Friday!
