After escaping through the ceiling of the Caldwell County Jail on August 11th, the manhunt for Brian Adkison, 23, came to an end in Westlake, Ohio on Wednesday, September 4th.

Adkison is accused of a multitude of crimes. He allegedly kidnapped and assaulted his ex-girlfriend from the Hamilton area. She later showed up at a Columbia hospital. He is then accused of leading authorities on a week-long man hunt before being taken into custody the first time.

In Boone County, Adkison is charged with burglary, forcible rape, and deviate sexual assault. In Caldwell County, he is charged with kidnapping, domestic assault, and violation of a protection order. He is also charged with escape from custody and damage to the jail or jail property. He faces one count of tampering with a motor vehicle in Carroll County. One count of burglary has been filed against Adkison in Morgan County. Charges of tampering with a motor vehicle have also been filed in Clay County.

Now, Adkison may be in need of a new attorney. Gerald Dennis Mueller filed a motion to withdraw as Adkison’s attorney on August 23rd. That motion was set to be heard last Tuesday, but online court records do not indicate what the ruling was by the Judge. There are no current court appearances scheduled at his time.
