Trumbull County, Ohio, August 2011: Shocking video footage shows a family court judge falling asleep, and what sounds like snoring or groaning, during testimonies involving child sexual abuse.
The judge can clearly be seen in the video, during several small segments, leaning forward with his head on the desk or on his hands, hunched over, while a witness is being questioned. In another segment, the Plaintiff’s witness looks towards the judge and says clearly, “He’s sleeping.” during her testimony. After a few seconds, the judge wakes up with a loud groan or snore.
