A LaRue County man, charged with escaping from the custody of Jailer Mac Trumbo, pleaded guilty Dec. 11 to an amended charge in LaRue District Court.
James Walter Hoback III, 23, of River Road, New Haven, was charged with escape, second degree, after running from the courtroom during proceedings. Hoback was called to court for non-payment of funds. Records indicate he failed to make restitution in a criminal mischief case from two years ago.
Hoback turned himself in to the sheriff’s office Nov. 10. He pleaded guilty to escape, third degree.
