Kidnapper Sues Former Hostages For Not Keeping Promise
Submitted by William
Jesse Dimmick is suing Jared and Lindsay Rowley because he says they broke an oral contract.
[Dimmick] is serving an 11-year sentence after bursting into Jared and Lindsay Rowley’s Topeka-area home in September 2009. He was wanted for questioning in the beating death of a Colorado man and a chase had begun in in Geary County…
Dimmick contends he told the couple he was being chased by someone, most likely the police, who wanted to kill him.
“I, the defendant, asked the Rowleys to hide me because I feared for my life. I offered the Rowleys an unspecified amount of money which they agreed upon, therefore forging a legally binding oral contract,” Dimmick said in his hand-written court documents. He wants $235,000, in part to pay for the hospital bills that resulted from him being shot by police when they arrested him.
Neighbors have said the couple fed Dimmick snacks and watched movies with him until he fell asleep and they were able to escape their home unharmed.Click here for reuse options!
