The escape charge carries a 7 year sentence, but I am sure the judge has some discretion. Sounds like this boy has lots of problems...........

get ur facts st8 1st off, been stated by the Chief that there were no handcuffs and its proper procedure 4 cuffs to b taken off before a judge.

No one is to blame for this situation? What kind of cop-out is that? This is all the police and correctional officers fault! What BS, calling it "unforeseeable." Why do you think they put handcuffs on inmates and make them wear orange jumpsuit, because they want to make a fashion statement?

The search crews did their job because the correctional officers and police at the court house failed in theirs. What if this kid was a rapist or a murderer?

Only some kind of union thug would actually want us to believe that the escape of an inmate was not the fault of the officers who were charge of his custody at the court house. You know damn well Campbell is going to hand some officers their heads on a plate over this.

First of all these articles never said what crime this kid did. Maybe it was just burglary or whatever, something that serious. I dont' see this kid as a murderer or pedophile or anything like that. He seems innocent and harmless. Don't judge the book by it's cover. Secondly, his mother stood up and defended him say that he wasn't that bad, he was just scared. Which is understandable, young kids that age have a whole life ahead of them and no kid like that deserves to go to prison if the crime he committed wasn't that serious. Give the kid a break people.

There was a reason he was in custody to begin with. If he was innocent, he would have been found not guilty and released. This is a huge victory for the rest of us.

Here is a young man in a very serious situation..I do not think we should poke fun at him..I feel he is a candidate for shock camp..I think he deserves a chance at setting his life straight..if he puts as much energy into that as he did to escape he will be a success..

It is a damn shame to see how quick someone is to want to see someone get jammed up in these types of situations before all the facts are presented.I am sure this person has plenty problems in their own lives to worry about but they get some kind of pleasure in seeing someone else get in touble. To that person: keep your negative comments to yourself because from reading your comment you dont have a clue about what you are commenting on.
To all the troops involved in this incident we appreciate your hard work and stay safe out there.

Once again you have no clue about the words you speak. First of all, corrections officers had nothing to do with this situation. He was out of the jail and in police custody. Correction Officers were called in to help with the search and actually are the officers who found him. Read the TU it has a great article. Secondly, he was handcuffed like he was suppose to be, but because of his small body frame he was able to get out of the cuffs after stuggling with them for awhile. The officer was trying to protect the inmates well being and mental health status, do to a conversation that he overheard. Please Jango if you don't have a clue, don't comment. You sit behind your little desk and judges all law enforcement, tell everyone that nobody in law enforcement does their job, and that they call for back-up because they're scared when they are just following protocal. It takes alot of guts to do the job that these people do everyday, but people like you make the job impossible, because no matter what they do, you'll be there to judge them. Get off you butt, take the test if you think you can do better. Don't be scared, you'll be able to call for back-up.

Oh by the way, it was Watervliet police department not the Albany County Sheriff's department, Campbell has say in the punishment.

Maybe he is on a natural high or something. He should have known that they would not stop until they got him.

He probably escaped cause the security guard at the jail were taking bets and not watching the prisoner
