A Juneau man is being sought by police after escaping from the custody of his defense attorney, who he had been released to for an appointment Wednesday.

According to a release from Juneau Police Department, 25-year-old William Moy Jr. was temporarily released by the courts into his defense attorney's custody for an appointment Wednesday, and was to return to jail by 2:00 p.m.

Moy, who was in custody on "multiple misdemeanor criminal offenses and a charge of felony escape," did not return.

JPD learned that Moy had unlawfully left the custody of his attorney. The defense attorney allegedly did not notify the police or the jail of his client's escape.

In August, Moy was being taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center in an Alaska State Troopers prisoner transport van when he reportedly

while wearing belly chains and a Lemon Creek inmate uniform. Moy evaded capture for about 20 minutes, after which he was found hiding in an abandoned car and arrested again.

JPD is seeking Moy on multiple arrest warrants Wednesday, and is asking for the community's assistance in locating Moy.

He's described as an Alaska Native male, around 5'7" tall, 175 pounds, black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who sees Moy or has information about his location is asked to call JPD at 907-586-0600.

JPD also is reminding the public in Juneau that anyone aiding Moy while he is wanted is subject to felony criminal charges for hindering prosecution.
