ID theft suspect who police say bailed on trial arrested again

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An identity theft suspect who authorities say skipped out on the last day of his trial last week is back behind bars.

Timothy Lepesh is being held at the Multnomah County Detention Center on $1 million bail.

He was arrested over the weekend.

Lepesh was expected to attend the closing arguments of his trial earlier this month, but investigators say someone helped him post bail just hours before closing arguments were set to begin.

A judge allowed the trial to move forward because no more witnesses had to be called, and the jury then returned a guilty verdict for Lepesh on charges of computer crimes, including identity theft and fraud.

Lepesh is expected back in court Monday afternoon.
