Last updated on Friday, November 9, 2007

(FORT WAYNE) - A Fort Wayne man threw himself headfirst over the railing on the third floor of the Allen County Courthouse Thursday, just moments after a jury convicted him of child molesting.

Cicero Offerle was led from the courtroom by a deputy when he ran and threw himself over the balcony. He hit his head on the marble railing on the second floor.

He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
