Man who admitted to sex act in Farrall Park is no-show in court, warrant issued

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.

Shouldn't it be "He allegedly didn't appear in court" ?

This story is like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps going, and going.... and going......and going. Why don't they just call it a wash, and let him off the hook too. South Beach could have run a special, let one off the hook, get another one free.
