    Great job WVSP, OCSO, WPD, and the host of others that helped return this guy behind bars.

    I would bet the CO will have a hard time explaining himself on this one though.

    He just went for a extended Labor Day stroll. He is still working, but the job he's now doing is the one he was sentenced for.

    He just added five years to his sentence. Stupid
