Only this time around, that big, bad mouth , that worked so well for him, was muzzled in a Manhattan courtroom by Carton’s attorney Robert Gottlieb. Carton, like most defendants, was not put on the witness stand to testify on his own behalf. This must have been an insult to the man who dubbed himself The Great Cartini. Carton was banned from putting his mouth to work when he needed it most. Carton would have never allowed his buddy Boomer to silence him.
