Man sues former hostages, says they broke promise
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - November 30, 2011 (WPVI) -- Can there be no trust between a kidnapper and his hostages? A man who held a Kansas couple hostage in their home while fleeing from authorities is suing them, claiming they broke an oral contract made when he promised them money in exchange for hiding him from police.
Jesse Dimmick of Colorado is serving an 11-year sentence after bursting into Jared and Lindsay Rowley's Topeka-area home in 2009. The couple escaped unharmed after Dimmick fell asleep.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Dimmick filed a breach of contract suit in Shawnee County District Court, contending that he and the Rowleys reached a legally binding oral contract that they would hide him in exchange for an unspecified amount of money. The couple has asked a judge to dismiss the suit.
