A nationally known father who ran off instead of helping his sick son wants to withdraw a guilty plea to some old charges.

Byron Perkins, 38, used his son's ailing kidney condition to get out of prison and then disappeared. He was returned to Kentucky on May 11, 2007.

According to Perkins' attorney, the father now wants to fight multiple gun and drug charges. He was awaiting sentencing when he vanished in early 2006.

Perkins fled to Mexico with his girlfriend.
