False. Illinois v. Allen (1970) specifically says that a trial judge may order a (disruptive and obstreporous) defendant bound and gagged in the courtroom. Allen posits this as something which should be a last resort as it can be prejudicial to the jury. I disagree for several reasons: first, the judge's authority in his courtroom is supposed to be complete and indisputable, particularly as regards decorum and proper procedures. Anything deviating from correct protocol can and will be used as material for mistrials, reversals, etc, and many smart people have pulled many stunts in courtrooms designed to do just that. Second, given that authority, the fact that it is a known quantity to most people in the courtroom, and the fact that there are officers with guns prominently placed in the courtroom, what is shocking or horrendously prejudicial about the enforcement of control even with harsh measures such as shackles and gags? A judge out west a few years ago answered a volley of contumacious invective- and the question 'why should I listen to you?'- with 'I'll have you bound and gagged if you don't stop and listen to me.' As it should be.
