SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A man who made a dramatic escape from a Sacramento courtroom in 2008 has been convicted of three counts of first-degree residential burglary.
Brandon Hunter, 22, is scheduled to be sentenced on March 8 after a jury found him guilty of the charges.
Authorities say Hunter and two accomplices kicked in the front door of homes and stole items including televisions, laptop computers and jewelry.
Hunter escaped from a Sacramento courtroom in February 2008 when he learned he would be arrested on suspicion of stealing a car.
Authorities say Hunter twisted out of a bailiff’s grip as he was about to be handcuffed and leaped from the second-floor mezzanine to the lower stairwell before running out of the courthouse.
He was arrested two days later.
