Sheriff's Deputy Proposes In Courtroom With Writ Asking To Marry Girlfriend

A sheriff's deputy came up with a unique way to propose to his wife, who is a member of staff at their local District Attorney's office – by "filing" a writ of his proposal and heading into the courtroom to raise it before getting down on one knee. Anni Oh, 49, from Suffolk County, New York, had no idea what was coming when she headed to court as part of a dangerous inmate case. Little did she know her boyfriend, Michael Davis, 46, a sheriff's deputy with the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office, was waiting outside, having planned his grand proposal with courtroom staff. In the buildup to the big question, Michael had contacted a friend of Anni's at the courthouse, who, in turn, asked Honorable William Condon, a Supreme Court Justice for the State of New York, for permission to propose in the building. One if Anni's cases required her to be in court. That day, Mike waited outside the courtroom with a writ, which he had printed out and put on the necessary blue-backed paper. The writ pleaded for Mike's permission for Anni's hand in marriage, and having walked into the courtroom, much to Anni's surprise, Mike then presented the papers to the judge and got down on one knee to propose. An emotional Anni said yes before tearfully heading into Mike's arms for a loving embrace, while the judge said, "Application granted."
