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 Delaware County Prosecutor’s 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*
