Florida: 25-year-old Sylvester Jiles has gotten what he wanted and then some with a judge sentencing him to fifteen years behind bars for resisting an officer and trespassing on jail property after he tried to break into jail.
Jiles suffered severe lacerations while trying to negotiate the barbed wire atop a 12-foot fence at Brevard County jail. His injuries were severe enough to require hospital treatment.
He had been imprisoned there until a week before the incident on a charge of manslaughter, but he walked free after accepting a plea deal. His desire to get back in stemmed from his fear of the family of the person he killed.
