Can't Outrun the Long Arm of Justice

A man walks away from a prison camp. He is a Vietnam vet who has "escaped" to sick mother in the Dominican Republic. For 20 years, he lives a life of freedom, bopping back and forth between the US (for VA hospital treatments) and the Dominican Republic. Finally, the US government picks him up and charges him with escape. Does he have a defense? The Eighth Circuit says no. Bob at Decision of the Day has the details.
