Paul Ceglia, that one guy who’s facing some serious charges for falsely claiming an ownership stake in Facebook, has  managed to escape his electronic ankle bracelet and made his getaway using a “motorized contraption” that simulated human movements. His wife, Iasia Ceglia, and their two sons , 10-year-old Leeman and 11-year-old Joseffinn, have also disappeared. 

The man facing fraud charges for claiming to own half of Facebook Inc. based on a phony contract escaped federal monitors by attaching his electronic ankle bracelet to what prosecutors called a “hand-made contraption” that simulated normal movements. Marshals forced their way into Paul Ceglia’s house in Wellsville, New York, on Sunday after a pretrial services officer was unable to contact him. They found Ceglia’s ankle bracelet hanging from the ceiling-mounted, motorized device, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander Wilson said in court papers Wednesday. Ceglia, 41, is scheduled to go on trial May 4 in Manhattan federal court, where Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is slated to testify against him. Ceglia was ordered to wear the ankle bracelet, which tracked his movements, as a condition of his pretrial release on $250,000 bond.
