Jeffrey Pratt, who was expected to make a court appearance in Robertson County Circuit Court Monday, escaped just minutes before his scheduled court appearance.
Pratt, 30, was expected to enter a plea for a charge of theft by unlawful taking over $300 in connection with a Mt. Olivet bank robbery.
According to Sheriff Randy Insko, about 12:45 p.m., Pratt was being led to the courthouse in shackles by Marvin Mulligan, deputy jailer, when Pratt allegedly shoved the deputy into the car and fled.
