TYLER (KYTX) -

37-year-old Nicky Charune Agnew of Dallas disappeared Thursday during a recess in his Smith County felony drug possession trial.

Agnew was convicted Thursday of the possessing between 4 and 200 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 of the Texas Controlled Substances Act. Penalty Group 1 includes heroin, cocaine, opium, methadone, morphine, methamphetamine and ketamine.

Immediately following his arrest for the alleged drug possession Agnew posted his $75,000 bond on March 24, 2012. Agnew was re-arrested on August 24, 2012 after Judge Kerry Russell of the Smith County 7th District Court determined the bond was not sufficient. Agnew has been out of the Smith County Jail since posting his $150,000 bond on August 25, 2012.

The court coordinator for Judge Kerry Russell's 7th District Court confirmed that Agnew attended his jury trial beginning Monday as required under the terms of his bail. She said he failed to return to court after a lunch break Thursday. Following the lunch break, both sides rested their cases and the jury found Agnew guilty despite his absence from court.

Judge Russell ultimately sentenced Agnew to spend life in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison facility.

Agnew was previously convicted of the unlawful delivery of a controlled substance in 2006 and aggravated assault in 1994. He has a number of other convictions as well.

A warrant is out for Agnew's arrest.

If you have any information on his whereabouts call the Smith County Crimestoppers at 903-597-CUFF (2833).
