A man convicted of assault against a family member is nowhere to be found after his conviction Wednesday.
43-year-old Leonard Allen Hennard left the Ellis County Courthouse shortly after a jury began deliberating the case against him according to the Office of the Ellis County District Attorney. Judge Bob Carroll waited two hours after the jury returned with a verdict, eventually accepting the jury’s guilty verdict without Hennard present.
