3. Suing your victims
In September 2009, Jesse Dimmick, who was already a fugitive charged with murder, kidnapped a couple from Kansas. However, Dimmick managed to fall asleep. And so, the couple took the opportunity and escaped.
The kidnapper was sued by the two for more than $75,000 in damages. Dimmick thought to countersue them. The motive?
Breach of contract. He was claiming that he and the two had a legally binding oral agreement. The contract stated that he was going to hide, while helped by the two.
It may come as a shock to you that his case was dismissed.
