This man gave a judge a heartfelt apology with an Adele-inspired song. Despite being guilty of unlawful imprisonment and carrying a concealed weapon he was clearly sorry for what he had done. Brian Earl Taylor belted out a “sorry” directed at the judge, his victim and his mum. Just as in the popular Adele’s song Taylor started with a “hello”.He then started to sing his well-thought out words, which he had written down ready for his moment in the spotlight.
“Hello there, your honour. “I wanna say I’m sorry, for the thing I’ve done.”
The 25-year-old’s efforts were appreciated by Judge Darlene O’Brien at Washtenaw County Trial Court in Detroit.
She told him he was “obviously a talented young man”.
But Taylor had been arrested by police who found him struggling with another man and holding a gun to his stomach.
Police said they suspected Taylor was one of three men who forced a 23-year-old man into a vehicle at gunpoint and drove him around before robbing him.
He was sentenced to two years in prison for illegally carrying a concealed weapon and 18 months to 15 years for unlawful imprisonment. Five other charges against him in the case were dismissed.— Mirror.co.uk
