hope he enjoyed that day of freedom and the additional tlme he will now have added because of it. the fact that you can do something doesnt mean you should.

Harry Simmons

He most likely got a good job assignment, and stupid thinking convinced him to walk away. He’ll never get that chance again, and he’ll be awarded another five years for escaping.

Rebecca Thomas

He escaped from the Solano County Delta Conservation Camp when he should have been in Prison locked up to serve his 7 yrs 8 months for Stalking and Threatening the Witness who saw him doing it, and was convicted for them. Now he manages to get back to Los Angeles but nobody has bothered to mention how he got there from here in Solano County.
