Judge orders Manchester business Michael Gill to stay behind bars after courtroom outburst
A New Hampshire businessman was jailed last week after mouthing off to a judge and being held in contempt of court.
Judge David LaFrancois has ruled that Gill will remain behind bars for 10 days at the Rockingham County House of Corrections.
In a one page decision, the judge stated that Gill was given “several warnings not to interrupt the court and not to speak out of turn” before being found guilty of criminal contempt.
“Mr. Gill’s repeated interruptions and speaking out of turn after several warnings not to do so prevented the court from conducting the hearing in an orderly manner,” said LaFrancois.
Gill is expected to be released on April 1.
