Jesse Dimmick trying to escape police questioning in a murder
Jesse Dimmick, trying to escape police questioning in a murder investigation, burst into Jared and Lindsay Rowley’s Kansas home with a knife. After gaining his trust by feeding him and watching a movie with him, the Rowleys were able to escape when Dimmick fell asleep. Police entered the house and arrested Dimmick, who was accidentally shot in the process. The Rowleys sued Dimmick for damages; Dimmick countersued for breach of contract, seeking $160,000 to cover hospital bills and $75,000 for pain and suffering. Dimmick said the Rowleys had broken their promise to keep him hid-den from authorities in return for cash. What defenses could the Rowleys raise to this claim? Explain.
