Northern Indiana surgeon convicted of stalking pleads guilty to escaping home detention


PERU, Indiana — A northern Indiana orthopedic surgeon has pleaded guilty to escape from in-home detention

Authorities say 49-year-old Gregory Konrath entered the plea Thursday in Miami Superior Court in Peru. They say Konrath also pleaded guilty to violating probation and violating in-home detention.

Sentencing was scheduled for August 18.

Authorities have said Konrath was on home detention when he cut off his tracking bracelet on April 28. He was found two days later near Flagstaff, Arizona.

Konrath had been released from jail two weeks before his escape after serving time on stalking charges. The charges stemmed from Konrath's alleged plot to kill his ex-wife.

Konrath is being held without bond in the Miami County Jail.

Konrath worked for Dukes Memorial Hospital in Peru when he was arrested last year.
