Prisoner Attempting to Escape Doesn’t Get Very Far
Press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
On September 9, 2016 Humboldt County Correctional Facility inmate Justin Patrick appeared in the Humboldt County Superior Court before honorable Judge Hinrichs. Twenty six year old Patrick is currently in custody for assault with intent to rape, false imprisonment, and numerous misdemeanor charges.
At about 2:43 pm Patrick was able to run from the courtroom and into the public hallway. The bailiff for Judge Hinrichs court broadcast a radio call that an inmate had just escaped. Several other bailiffs responded and captured Patrick not far from the entrance to the courtroom. The Sheriff’s Office will be seeking the additional charge of escape.
