Man who admitted to sex act in Farrall Park is no-show in court, warrant issued
Last week the attorney for Justin Amend, who previously admitted to a sex act in Farrall Park, said the former Oakfield resident was too embarrassed by his notoriety to even walk into Tops Market.

Amend reportedly failed to appear in court Wednesday and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Last week, Judge Robert Balbick informed Amend that because the 29-year-old former Oakfield resident moved to Florida, the option of a no-jail sentence had been eliminated.
As part of a plea bargain, Amend pled guilty to public lewdness, a Class B misdemeanor, in exchange for a promise of no jail time.
But Florida is unlikely to accept supervision of a probation case, attorneys said, for a misdemeanor violation.
Balbick gave Amend's attorney, Tom Williams, a week to explore weekend jail options and make his own inquiries with Florida about probation.
