Man sues former hostages, says they broke promise

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - November 30, 2011

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.
