Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Brendan Sheehan ordered Jeffrey Dodson, 51, who had spent 72 days in jail awaiting trial and was not allowed a belt for his court appearance, to raise his right hand to be sworn in and the handcuffs he was wearing forced him to lift both hands, allowing his pants to fall to the floor, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Monday.
Sheehan ordered the public defender to hold up his client's plants and Dodson pleaded guilty to pandering charges.
Dodson is scheduled to be sentenced this week.
