Man Skips Out On Trial; Jury Still Convicts

A man in Beaufort County court this week left for a break...and never came back. Now he's a fugitive on the run.

Authorities are looking for Rondell Sanders. He was in court Wednesday for an armed robbery charge.

During his trial, a recess was taken and deputies say Sanders took off.

The trial continued without him on Thursday and the jury found him guilty.

"This is kind of rare, it has happened in the past. Anytime someone's out on bond, not in custody, they are free to go just like anyone else in the courtroom," said Captain Kenneth Watson.

Now Crimestoppers is offering a reward to anyone who has information that leads to Sanders apprehension.
