CLEARFIELD – Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., announced Clearfield County’s Fugitive of the Week for the week of Sept. 20, 2010.
Shaw identified the Fugitive as Cory James Kubiak, age 41, of Madera, Pennsylvania. Shaw stated that Kubiak is wanted for failure to appear at Criminal Call on July 8, 2004.
On July 3, 2002, Trooper Matthew Reifer, of the Pennsylvania State Police, Woodland Barracks, filed a criminal complaint charging Kubiak with: 1) Driving Under the Influence, M2; 2) drivers required to be licensed, S; and 3) restraint systems, S.
An Affidavit of Probable Cause filed by Reifer states that on June 21, 2002, the State Police were dispatched at approximately 5:30 pm to investigate a two vehicle crash on state Route 153 approximately one mile south of SR 2027. Upon arrival, Reifer made contact with Kubiak who was identified as the driver of a pick-up truck involved in the crash. Kubiak lost control of his vehicle while trying to pass another car. Kubiak struck the other car causing the crash. After administering field sobriety tests, Reifer transported Kubiak for a blood test.
The victim, who was driving the other vehicle, reported that he was traveling south on SR 153 when a pick-up came from behind and struck his vehicle. The victim reported that the pick-up went off the roadway and then returned to the roadway. The victim’s vehicle was then struck again before Kubiak’s pick-up went up the roadway and overturned.
A preliminary hearing was held on August 14, 2002, at which time Kubiak waived the charges to court. On July 8, 2004, Kubiak failed to appear for Criminal Call and a warrant was issued for Kubiak’s arrest.
