Inmate Charged With Escape After Failing to Return From Court Ordered Pass
Today, Kaleb Severe, age 32, failed to return to the Humboldt County jail following a court-ordered pass. According to Samantha Karges, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Department, “Severe was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on 3/14/2018 by the Arcata Police Department on charges of resisting arrest, three misdemeanor counts of violation of probation, one felony count of violation of probation, and violating a restraining order.”
On Saturday, the 24th, he was released on a court-ordered pass. Karges said,
“He was ordered to be released at 8 a.m. and was scheduled to return to custody no later than 8 p.m.” Karges explained that as he did not return, “he is being charged with PC4532(e)–Wilful Failure to Return and PC1203.2–Probation Violation.
Karges explained that sometimes “the court will allow an inmate to leave the jail for things like a funeral, deathly ill relative, etc.”
