    Jesse Dimmick is suing the couple he was convicted of kidnapping while on the run from police.

    Dimmick contends in the breach of contract suit seeking $235,000 that after he entered Jared and Lindsay Rowley’s house in 2009, they reached a legally binding, oral contract that they would hide him for an unspecified amount of money.

    “Later, the Rowleys reneged on said oral contract, resulting in my being shot in the back by authorities,” Dimmick wrote in a notarized legal document indicating he was filing the counterclaim in response to a suit against Dimmick that the Rowleys filed in September.

    Dimmick personally — in longhand — wrote the document, which was filed Oct. 21 in Shawnee County District Court.

    He wrote: “As a result of the plaintiffs breech (sic) of contract, I, the defendant suffered a gunshot to my back, which almost killed me. The hospital bills alone are in excess of $160,000, which I have no way to pay.”

    The Rowleys sought this month to have the suit dismissed, saying they never accepted Dimmick’s offer of money and — if they had — their consent would have been given under duress. District Judge Franklin Theis has yet to rule on their motion for dismissal.

    Dimmick, a fugitive facing a murder charge in Colorado, was leading authorities on a vehicle chase on the morning of Sept. 12, 2009, when law enforcement stop sticks punctured the tires of the stolen van he was driving. The van came to a halt in the front yard in southwest Shawnee County’s Dover community of the home of the Rowleys, who were newlyweds.

    The Rowleys said Dimmick entered their home and confronted them at knifepoint. A neighbor told The Topeka Capital-Journal in September 2009 that the couple gained his trust by eating Cheetos and drinking Dr Pepper with him while watching the movie “Patch Adams.”

    The couple fled the house after Dimmick fell asleep. Police said they entered and ordered Dimmick onto his stomach before a Topeka police officer’s rifle accidentally discharged, striking Dimmick in the back.

    Dimmick was convicted in May 2010 in Shawnee County District Court of four felonies, including two counts of kidnapping. He was sentenced to 10 years and 11 months in prison. Dimmick is currently being held in the Adams County Detention Center in Brighton, Colo., on a murder charge linked to the September 2009 killing there of Michael Curtis.

    Dimmick filed a civil suit against the city of Topeka in September 2010 seeking damages in excess of $75,000, including medical expenses. A pretrial hearing in the suit is set for Dec. 6.

    Attorney Robert E. Keeshan filed a lawsuit last September on behalf of the Rowleys against Dimmick seeking damages in excess of $75,000 and contending he committed the torts of trespass, intrusion upon seclusion and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

    Dimmick filed a response Oct. 21 seeking to have the Rowleys’ claim dismissed and stating a counterclaim for breach of contract seeking $160,000 to cover hospital bills and $75,000 for pain and suffering.

    Dimmick’s response said he was representing himself “without the aid of proffessional (sic) legal counsel.”

    He wrote that after he entered the Rowleys’ home, “I told them that I was being pursuid (sic) by a person, or persons, who appeared to be police officers, who were trying to kill me.”

    He added: “I, the defendant, asked the Rowleys to hide me because I feared for my life. I offered the Rowleys an unspecified amount of money which they agreed upon, therefore forging a legally binding oral contract.”

    Dimmick’s response said he never brandished a knife or any other type of weapon to try to force the Rowleys to hide him or agree to a contract.

    Keeshan filed an answer to Dimmick’s counterclaim on behalf of the Rowleys Oct. 27, then filed a motion to dismiss the counterclaim Nov. 4.

    Keeshan wrote in the motion that if the Rowleys had agreed to an oral contract — which they deny — it wouldn’t have been legally binding because no specific dollar amount was given.

    “In order for parties to form a binding contract, there must be a meeting of the minds on all essential terms, including and most specifically, an agreement on the price,” he wrote.

    Keeshan added that if the Rowleys had agreed to the contract, that agreement wouldn’t have been legally binding because their consent would have been given under duress.

    He wrote, “The Rowleys believed he had a gun and knew that he had a knife.”

    Keeshan also wrote there could be no legal contract because the Rowleys were asked to hide a fugitive, which is illegal.

    why didn't the cops try again?:confused:

    i'm surprised he's not suing the company that made the gun instead, or the officer who shot him.

    Why did the bullet have to miss his spinal cord or brain???? Idiots like this deserve to be dead. While I have some issue with myself wishing people dead and trying to keep God's views in mind about forgiveness and also an eye for an eye ( we are talking about a murderer here); there's no part of me that is glad he survived the gunshot.

    Oh, this guy is going to be FUN on a yard! He'll want a STACK of kites when he hits prison, (hint, "kite" is slang for inmate letters", as in "go fly a"), and he'll be the first one filing the grievances over prison peanut butter. :D

    This is not a contract. A contract to evade the law or to do anything that is unlawful is never enforcable. It's like saying you have a contract for someone to drive a get away car after you rob a bank. Well the ddriver leaves the robbery leaving the bank robber in the cold. Its not a contract. Stupid that an attourney would listen to this dope.

    Agreements made under duress aren't binding. The ambulance chaser who took this is looking for an insurance company handout.

    I just think it is a shame that the police who shot him were not equipped with more effective weapons, or perhaps they just needed more training....

    Unfortunately, most handguns are by design not meant to kill, especially with police ammunition. Thank God most of us now carry rifles in our cruisers. ;)

    OK this all boils down to....
    "The couple fled the house after Dimmick fell asleep. Police said they entered and ordered Dimmick onto his stomach before a Topeka police officer’s rifle accidentally discharged, striking Dimmick in the back.
    Should of read Actually discharged 14 times killing Dimmick.

    "Unfortunately, most handguns are by design not meant to kill, especially with police ammunition. Thank God most of us now carry rifles in our cruisers"

    When I was a PO 1975 till 1980 I carried a 357 Colt Python 4" loaded with 110 grain HP +P+ ammo with another 12 rounds in Speed loaders. If that is not Lethal I dont know what you are talking about. As far as a rifle we had Remington 870s I loaded mine with First 2 rounds oo Buck last 3 rounds Slugs.

    Still rememder convincing an Individual to get out of a Chevy van by banging the rear windows with the rubber buttpad, then using a 12 Ga CN round through the side window to finally get him out. Later I pointed out to the Sarg the imprints left in the dust on the rear window clearly reading Remington...
