Felipa, 43, of Gwynn Oak, was released on bail and was due in Baltimore County Circuit Court on Oct. 14 for sentencing, they said. He didn't show up, and police don't know where he is.

Authorities say that in December 2012, Felipa's then-wife visited a police precinct in Catonsville. She told investigators she had been married to him since March 1998 and had recently discovered he was married to other women.
