Houston man DeAundric Jaquay Dorsey, 33, went on the run after three days of testing. Dorsey was sentenced to 40 years in prison, but after his release, authorities said Dorsey did not return to court after the first day of his trial.
On Tuesday, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, Crime Stoppers CEO Rania Mankarious, Victim Services Director Andy Kahan and Crime Stoppers panel member and trafficking advocate Jennifer Hohman joined forces to asking the public to help find him.
“There is no person more dangerous to law enforcement capture than a wanted fugitive who knows he is looking at the moment,” Ogg said. “There is nothing more frustrating for our prosecutors than to make a case, work with the victim and have her testify to find the defendant absconding with a small bond that should not have been should be set.”
Court records show prosecutors asked to hold Dorsey without bond pending trial due to his previous robbery conviction in Michigan. The filing also states that Dorsey is a flying risk and a danger to the Harris County community and youth.
However, Judge Desean Jones approved and reduced Dorsey’s bond from $50,000 to $25,000, and then further reduced to $15,000, which the defendant did.
On Tuesday, ABC13 spoke with Jones, who said he wasn’t sure what went through Dorsey’s mind that made him run away but said it’s often a person who is put on trial when they’re not in a relationship. constraints and this did not happen.
“We know that someone out there knows where he is. There’s no if, and of or but of.” Kahan said during Tuesday’s briefing.
Anyone with information about Dorsey’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
