CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio man who told jailers he shouldn’t be released is back behind bars at a county jail in Cleveland.
Cleveland.com reports 36-year-old Francisco Cruz called a Cuyahoga County judge after his release from the county lockup last week and asked how he could return to jail.
A state prison term for drug possession and domestic violence ended Oct. 2, the same day Cruz was sentenced to a community corrections facility for another drug possession conviction. He was released despite telling officials he was supposed to remain in jail until his transfer to the other facility where he’d receive drug treatment.
Judge John Russo called the facility on Cruz’s behalf and learned it only accepted inmates from jails.
Cruz met with his parole officer Thursday and is back in jail.
