BEREA, OH - Stephanie Rybkoski, 42, was facing 180 days in jail after being sentenced for stealing from the Strongsville Walmart. Judge Mark Comstock told Rybkoski to sit in the jury box until Strongsville police arrived, but she left the courtroom and went into the hall.

After a few minutes, she ran off down two flights of stairs and out to her parked SUV. Authorities say she knocked a bailiff to the ground as she backed out.

When Rybkoski is caught, she'll face additional charges of escape, assault and resisting arrest. No doubt, next time she is sentenced, she be in handcuffs.
