An Anaheim doctor charged with Medi-Cal fraud and solicitation for murder and bribery was jailed by a Superior Court judge Tuesday when he tried to shout her down after accusing her of bias.
Lawrence S. Krain, 44, who already has been declared by one judge to be incompetent to stand trial on part of the charges against him, was led away in handcuffs after he pleaded with Judge Kathleen E. O'Leary to accept his apology and not find him in contempt of court.
"Oh please, please, Your Honor, I have to be in federal bankruptcy court in the morning, please don't do this," Krain said, near tears. "I promise never to talk in court again. Oh, please don't do this."
O'Leary ordered attorneys in Krain's case back to court in Santa Ana at 9 a.m. today so that she can sentence Krain on her contempt finding.
