Prosecutor Walks Out of Court After Bizarre Exchange with Judge

Share This Post

Delaware County Assistant Prosecutor Mark Sleeper turned his back on a judge and walked out of the courtroom last week after a bizarre exchange where he mumbled “know what I’m saying?” several times and failed to make any sense.

Judge Stephen Wolaver looked on in stunned silence, dumbfounded as Sleeper continually stumbled trying to get his point across.

The strange scene during the Matheau Moore murder trial was just the latest embarrassment for the Delaware County Prosecutor’s office, which struggled to present a coherent case during the nationally televised trial. Moore was ultimately found not guilty on all counts.

Was the pressure getting to Sleeper? Was he ready to quit the case and leave his boss Melissa Schiffel to fend for herself? No one knows, but it was yet another black eye for the already beleaguered office.

Video Transcript

Attorney Sleeper: All we saying is, you know what I’m saying, you know what I’m saying?

Judge Wolaver: *silence*

Attorney Sleeper: No, no, what I’m saying is, you’re hearing the “no” in “know what I’m saying,” but that’s not a “no,” it’s a “know what I’m saying.”

Judge Wolaver: *silence*

Attorney Sleeper: *turns back to the court and walks out*

  1. You realize this is dubbed with J Roc from Trailer Park Boys, right? Is the quality and integrity of your news organization?

    • I think this is supposed to be a satire site? It’s just not very good… the guys bio reads:
      “His fondest childhood memory is getting a hand job from a public utility worker in the basement of Pilsner’s 5 & Dime store. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Euthanasia from Ohio Wesleyan University.”

  2. This is probably some of the worst reporting I have ever read. You explain nothing but an opinion.
    To the management, please go find some actual journalist to write for you.

  3. Protecting the corrupt judges reputation huh…. nice ‘article’ dumbass. Watch the video. Judge is corrupt and says he will proceed anyway. Prosecution walks out to protest the crimes judge is commiting

  4. Whoa, did anyone catch that courtroom drama with Prosecutor Mark Sleeper? 😳 “Know what I’m saying?” on repeat, and then he just walks out? 🚶‍♂️ What’s the deal there? And poor Judge Wolaver looked like he had seen a ghost! 👻 The whole Matheau Moore trial has been like a soap opera, and now he’s found not guilty on all counts? 🤨 What’s happening in our Prosecutor’s office? Is there more to this story? 🕵️‍♂️💼

  5. I checked out this “news” website and feel like the demonic possession on it needs a good rebuking. This is the Fake News we were all warned about. Imagine not having to be accurate or truthful in anything you say. Turning pure evil right into the soil. These folks do it merrily.

  6. Funny ..this is a sham article about a sham proceeding. In America, you have the right to face your accusers!

  7. My god the comments here are an indication of just how disconnected the American people has become from reality.

    Well done, hilarious satire and point proven in the comments 👍
