Michigan Department of Corrections Web siteLaytwan T. Jackson
ST. LOUIS -- Prison officials at the St. Louis Correctional Facility went into lockdown at 9:30 a.m. today when 18-year-old inmate Laytwan T. Jackson escaped.
"He was assigned as a maintenance worker outside the secure perimeter of the facility when he ran," said Russ Marlan, spokesman for the state Department of Corrections.

Great another reason for the MDOC and the common citizens to say "lock them up forever", no more work crews, etc. etc. etc.

Thats the sad part about it tballa. Society uses every rare occassion such as this against all inmates regardless of their individual behavior. I heard about the escape at 10:25am when my daughters school called and an automated message system informed me that they were on lock-down because of it (I live in St Louis).

One day on the lam...how much time added to the sentence?!? I would love to have one free day for my guy, but the end cost is so not worth it! They always find you...the woman who escaped 32 years ago that was just found in California can attest to that.

Lol - Yeah I Hope It Was Worth It, Because Im Sure The Time They Give Him For Escape Probably Further Exceeds His Original Time.

Well so far the stunt has moved him from a level I at Mid-Mich to a level V at Ionia Max.

Yep! He will spend time in Max and will never go below a Level II again. An escape is a minimum of 5 yrs added on I think. It's too bad because he probably would have gone home not long after his ERD. I wouldn't count on that now.

I was thinking it is five more years beyond when they would normally let you go, not concurrent. Not sure if that is correct but it seems like it is what I heard on the news recently when they were discussing someone who was to get out but had an escape 30 years ago. They were determining if he had done his time after his original sentence.

Doesn't seem worth it to me. With all the technology and stuff the world is just too small. It would be very, very difficult to hide forever.

whether it is concurrent or consecutive is usually up to the judge at the time of sentencing.

It seems to me they put the kid in a position to fail. He is only 18 for God's sake. Do you mean to tell me they couldn't put a more mature seasoned vet of the system, closer to an out date on that detail? They had to have known that the temptation for him to bolt would be strong. At his age, he probably had little knowledge of the consequences. I'm glad he was returned safely, but now his safety will always be a factor as a young man his size in a level 5 capacity. I feel sorry for him and his family.

Level V's here are made up of a mix of people. People are placed in different levels based on their hisotry in prison, not just because of the crimes the commit. I know of bad check writers who are in a level V. There are large and small guys across the board here in MI. MDOC does not have provisions to take into account a person's maturity when determining whether a person is placed on a detail or not. There are quite a few young guys working in similar details. A person has to be responsible for the choices they make. Now he is responsible for his and will hopefully learn from his mistake without it costing him more than another 5 yrs.
