Can You Guess What This Person Was Charged With?

josephleonardledouxThe only hint is that he certainly does have a leg to stand on in court . . . 

Ledoux is accused of not only stealing a computer in Fargo, North Dakota but also making off with a prosthetic leg.  Police were able to track him down with the use of a K9 unit and found him with the prosthetic leg.  

Ledoux now faces charges of a parole violation, felony drug paraphernalia, felony possession of stolen property, and refusing to halt.  The last charge is a misdemeanor that would be applicable to any flight case:

Any person, other than the driver of a motor vehicle under section 39-10-71, who willfully fails or refuses to stop or who otherwise flees or attempts to elude, in any manner, a pursuing peace officer, when given a visual or audible signal to stop, is guilty of a class B misdemeanor for a first or second offense and a class A misdemeanor for a subsequent offense. A signal to stop complies with this section if the signal is perceptible to the person and:

1.    If given from a vehicle, the signal is given by hand, voice, emergency light, or siren, and the vehicle is appropriately marked showing it to be an official law enforcement vehicle; or

2.    If not given from a vehicle, the signal is given by hand, voice, emergency light, or siren, and the officer is in uniform or prominently displays the officer’s badge of office.

  1. But, if this man did try to throw away the evidence, the motto of the Isle of Man offers some insight…

    Quocunque Jeceris Stabit

    “Whichever way you throw, it [the charges] will stand.”

  2. 39-10-71: “… a pursuing peace officer …”.

    He’s innocent! There are no “peace” [police] officers anymore. They are now “revenue collectors”.

    Or, was he being pursued for not paying taxes on the leg … ?
