Inmate Is Captured On Surveillance Cameras Making A Run For It Through A Courthouse Filled With Officers

An inmate has been captured on surveillance cameras making a run for it through a Cincinnati courthouse. Jeffrey Hope, 28, made his daring escape attempt at the Hamilton County Courthouse just moments before he was due to appear before a judge.

Surveillance video shows Jeffrey Hope, 28, walking out of a holding tank as an attorney calls for another inmate to come forward. Once Hope is out of the holding cell, which is several floors up in the Hamilton County Courthouse, he takes off down a hallway before being cornered by jailers and taken back to a holding cell.

Hope was slated to appear before a judge for five counts of criminal trespassing and five counts of theft. Hope’s dash down the hallway added a third-degree felony for escape to his list of charges.
