Sentencing Set for Man Who Skipped Trial

    Sentencing is set for a man who authorities say skipped out on the last day of his own trial last week.
    A 30th Distirct Court jury found Ronnie Dabney guilty of making meth inside his Wichita County home.
    He'll be sentenced Oct. 15.
    A warrant was issued for his arrest Thursday after he didn't show up to his last day of trial.
    The jury found him guilty of manufacturing a controlled substance, more than 400 grams.
    Wichita County sheriff's deputies say they received a number of anonymous tips as to where Dabney was hiding.
    They eventually found him hiding under some trees at Holliday Creek near the Flying J Truck Stop in the 23-hundred block of Old Jacksboro Highway.
    Deputy Chief Derrald Choate says some of the tips deputies received led them to a house in the 11-hundred block of 23rd St.
    That's where authorities interviewed the suspect's father Lyston Dabney, Roy Williams, and Daniel Holcomb.
    Choate says all three lied to authorities about Ronnie Dabney's whereabouts and hid him from authorities.
    All three are charged with hindering apprehension.
