HEARTFELT APOLOGY: convict Brian Earl Taylor

A GUILTY man gave a judge a heartfelt apology with an Adele-inspired song while in cpur

Brian Earl Taylor was found guilty of unlawful imprisonment and carrying a concealed weapon, but he wanted to make sure the judge knew he was sorry for what he had done.

In a video clip, Taylor belted out a "sorry" directed at the judge, his victim and also his mum.

He then started to sing his well-thought out words, which he had written down on a sheet of paper.

He sang: "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, US.

She told him he was "obviously a talented young man".

Taylor had been arrested by police who found him struggling with another man and holding a gun to his stomach, the Mirror reported.

Police said they suspected three men 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.
