Imagine being convicted of a crime and the convict’s first reaction is to commit the crime again right in the presence of the judge.

This was how a man in Ohio threw all his chances of an appeal out the window after he was sentenced to 47 years in prison.

David Chislton was in a Cleveland courtroom for a sentencing hearing that involved nearly two dozen charges, including assaulting his girlfriend and setting fire to a Warrensville Heights apartment building in 2017, according to WKYC TV.

Obviously angry, he immediately sucker-punched his lawyer, Aaron Brockler, who was just about to tell Chislton he would see what options he might still have.

Courtroom security pounced on Chislton and subdued him.

Asides losing a case, Brockler suffered various facial injuries as well as a possible concussion, according to Cleveland station WEWS.

“It was pretty fun,” Brockler, who had a small cut on his face, joked to Cleveland.com.

“I turned to him because I was about to tell him that I will come and meet with him privately to see if there was anything we could do to reduce the sentence,” Brockler told WKYC.

“But before I could even open my mouth, I just heard a swoosh sound. All I remember is waking up on the floor underneath the table.”

Authorities are in the process of filing additional charges against Chislton, according to WEWS.
