Isaiah Budnick

Did a La Salle man simply forget he was supposed to be on trial this week?

A bench trial for 34-year-old Isaiah Budnick was set to start Monday in Ottawa. But the defendant who is charged with felony counts of criminal sexual abuse and criminal trespassing to a home, was a no show. A warrant was issued and Budnick was arrested at his La Salle apartment Monday night and put back into the La Salle County Jail.

The charges stem from an incident back in July of last year. Budnick's bond is $50,000.
