JIM THORPE, Pa. (AP) — An eastern Pennsylvania man showed up for his sentencing on simple assault charges, then evidently had a change of heart and ducked out of the courthouse.
The Times News of Lehighton (http://bit.ly/IYkZis ) reports that 34-year-old Larry Moser Jr. of Lehighton hasn't been seen since vanishing from the Carbon County Courthouse on Tuesday morning right before he was to learn his sentence.
Moser had admitted to stabbing a man in the shoulder and giving false information to police in two separate incidents.
At one point Tuesday, Moser called a court office to say he was outside the courthouse, but wouldn't come in unless his lawyer was with him. Lawyer Kent Watkins says he went outside, but Moser was nowhere to be found.
The judge issued a warrant for Moser's arrest.
