Jesse Dimmick was facing a murder charge and was on the run when he kidnapped a Kansas couple in 2009. Over the course of the evening, he fell asleep, and the couple escaped. They ended up suing him for $75,000 in damages. At which point he countersued—for breach of contract.
Dimmick said that they had made a binding verbal agreement with him to help him hide from police. The suit was dropped.
