Elderly Woman Takes The Stand During Her Court Hearing - Leaves The Judge Cracking Up

A judge in Florida probably thought he'd be hearing a routine case about a protective order. Little did he know; the woman was a regular comedian.

Dolores Sheinis found herself before a judge in Broward County, Florida after violating a protective order taken out by her ex-husband. Apparently, Sheinis and her ex - who she divorced more than 30 years ago - have been having some property disputes. The judge tries to explain to Sheinis that the property dispute is another matter, but he was giving her one last chance on the protective order.

Sheinis began cracking jokes, causing even the hardened inmates behind her to laugh.

“I did. If you paid me good money, sweetheart. I’ll be here I’m really short of funds,” she said.

“Ma’am, have you ever thought about doing a standup routine?” the judge asked.

"I gotta tell you, you brighten my day ma’am,” said the judge.

“That’s what the last guy said and then he sued me,” said Sheinis.

The judge lost it and began hysterically laughing, as did all the people behind Sheinis awaiting a hearing. About the only one who wasn't laughing was her pro-bono representation, who begged her not to push it.

Sheinis got to walk out with a warning. Even though the judge clearly enjoyed her company, he seems to be hoping he won't ever catch her act again.
