    They called him

    Please would you take a look at these sentences and correct my mistakes.

    1.They called him to join them, but he sat in his chair as deaf.
    2.The judge remained deaf to the pleas of the accused, and sentenced him to prison.

    Absolutely not. I have just wanted to see if I can use the word "deaf" in this kind of sentences.
