What Happens If You Break Into Prison? | REVERSE PRISON ESCAPE

When most people think of prisons, they think
of someplace they’re happy not to be. But not everyone. While we often we hear of inmates trying to
break out of jail to freedom there are also some who try to break in for any of several
reasons. Depending on their unique circumstances, they
face different consequences for their actions. Let’s find out what these could be in this
episode of the Infographics Show, What Happens if You Break into Prison? First of all, just what happens to you if
you either attempt to or successfully break into a prison largely depends on who you are,
your motivations, and what you did if you were lucky enough to make it in. Applicable laws may vary by state not to mention
by country. To find out what these consequences could
be let’s look at some of the unlucky who have attempted to navigate a jail’s defenses
only to be caught and, in most cases, charged and sentenced. Sylvester Jiles, for example, had formerly
served time for manslaughter but was released from a Florida jail in 2009. He lasted three days in the great wide open
before apparently missing the feeling of being boxed in. He first approached guards with a simple request
to let him back inside. They obviously refused, after which he attempted
to climb over the jail’s walls. He may or may not have noticed the barbed
wire on top before his climb, but it’s safe to say he was well-aware of it after. He got stuck in it and was caught. Because he was out on probation, in this instance,
he was in violation of his probation conditions and was sentenced to 15 more years in prison. While most would find this terrible news,
we are sure he was quite oddly thrilled. Then there’s Martin Ussery who, like Sylvester
Jiles, apparently didn’t like being free. Though instead of lasting three days outside
bars, at least he made it to three years. After being paroled from Folsom Prison in
California in 2008 he was found in the grass outside the facility in 2011. His location was given away due to handy thermal
technology which zeroed in on him as he climbed a fence. In this crazy world of crazies, we can almost
believe his claims that he was just there to reminisce about his previous stay. However, it is much more likely that he was
there in an attempt to smuggle in contraband instead. Unsurprisingly, he was charged and his bail
was set at an impressive $1 million. Let’s hope for his sake that any cash he
made in his efforts to sneak things in amounted to anything close to that amount. In the case of Monique Armstrong, who was
not out on parole, what she lacked in criminal history she made up for with limitless stupidity. Believe it or not, she actually called police
before she attempted to gain unauthorized entry to a Colorado facility. She was able to navigate a chained fence and
was trying to break windows to a building when she was spotted. All this was an attempt to get access to her
18-year-old brother who was not even in that area of the property. She asked to be arrested, and those in charge
were all too happy to oblige. This behavior earned her charges of criminal
trespass and criminal mischief. Her brother, on the other hand, who she’d
gotten into all this mess in order to see walked out just hours later on bond. We’re guessing he had better sense and didn’t
break back in to see his silly sister, thought that would make a great story. Then there are those willing to put their
freedom on the line for friends as well as family. Patrick Rempe of Florida, for instance, was
arrested after he got tangled in the wire of a prison fence. Though it was almost certain he’d be caught
regardless. If you’re curious why, we’ll tell you. You see, before he’d started to climb the
fence, he’d announced his presence by driving his car into the prison’s front door. It seems that Rempe was high at the time on
a drug known as flakka and just wanted to visit his buddies. This was somewhat of a problem, however, since
they were prison inmates. He decided to pop in nonetheless. Though, he really didn’t think it through,
as he couldn’t navigate even one fence and the prison had two. Beyond these, there was the also the issue
of a locked door. Now what does driving high, crashing your
car into a jail, scaling its fence, and fighting back when caught get you? Three felonies for criminal mischief, driving
under the influence, and leaving the scene of a crash with property damage. Not to mention, aggravated assault and battery
on a law enforcement officer. In other words, it was really, really not
pretty. Facing these charges, he was held without
bond, but fortunately for him this meant lots of opportunity to catch up with those friends. There seem to be fewer charges involved for
those who attempt to bust into jail while intoxicated when they don’t first crash
their cars, destroy prison ground property, or fight the police. Tiffany Hurd, for example, faced only one
charge in the case of drunkenly attempting to enter The Butler County Jail in Ohio. She was yet another who was stopped short
by a rather inconvenient fence. Again, like Monique Armstrong, she rather
strangely requested to be arrested when found. This was in spite of the deputy present repeatedly
trying to convince her to go home. It seems that not only breaking into prison
but requesting to be thrown in jail happens more often than you’d think. Booze or not, due to her strange behavior
she was given the misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Let’s hope she didn’t make her situation
worse with a repeat offense by attempting to drink away her new problems. Nicholas Celius of New Orleans tried to infiltrate
the recreation area of a jail in 2018 for much more nefarious reasons. He was noticed but escaped only to abandon
his backpack which was holding quite an impressive stash of cocaine, marijuana, and heroine. He was captured not long after. In addition to resisting an officer he faced
charges of drug possession and then there was the matter of an outstanding warrant from
the state of Texas. While Celius had been nabbed, however, two
others on the scene were not as easy for the cops to pick up. At the time of his arrest these accomplices
remained at large as well as unidentified. Then we have a strange case involving some
alcohol in the country down under of Australia. Apparently, it was here that in the summer
of 2014 detainees were leaving its Berrimah jail and then turning around and reentering. While free they would go out and have some
fun drinking. However, they made sure to return each and
every day before prisoners were accounted for first thing in the morning. Unfortunately for those involved, their activities
were revealed when some of the men brought attention to themselves by fighting over a
cellular phone. This left authorities in quite a confusing
position as they tried to figure out what charges they could level on the offenders
for breaking out but then breaking back in. Believe it or not, we have an even odder situation
involving a planned break-in in Queensland, Australia. Here two young women in their twenties went
to a restricted area outside a Brisbane correctional facility and stood suspiciously by its fence. They were discovered and the reason they gave
for their actions defies all logical reason. Apparently, the women had watched far too
many episodes of a popular crime-based drama called Wentworth and they wanted to know if
real life prison was as interesting. Though searched and found to have nothing
suspicious on them, they still faced charges of unlawful entry. The event inspired a police officer to remind
the public that correctional institutions are serious places and not tourist destinations. For Serhiy Vlasenko, his reasons for crawling
under the fence of a prison made much more sense and, as far as we can tell, got him
no consequences. Then again, he was a lawyer representing a
former Ukrainian prime minister who was supposedly being denied satisfactory health care behind
bars. In addition to allegedly skimping on medical
treatment they must have also been trying to save money with limited guards. When Vlasenko arrived, there was no one there
to let him in. Or, as others believe, they were purposefully
denying him entry with a rather peculiarly timed break. Whatever the reason, Vlasenko was less than
patient. Without anyone to give him access, the lawyer
resorted to rather unlawyer-like behavior by entering via the bottom of the fence. The chief of the prison labeled this as voluntary
trespassing. Vlasenko, on the other hand, claimed that
to see his client such actions were necessary. Though he may have escaped punishment in this
instance, the lawyer ultimately got hit with other legal issues involving a messy divorce
and alleged theft. So, aside from obvious amusement, what can
we take away from all of these unique situations? Well, it appears at the very least that someone
attempting to bust into a jail will be leveled with is some type of charge for trespassing. If they are drunk or high when they do it,
they can be charged with disorderly conduct or, in the unusual instance when it’s applicable,
driving under the influence. Doing things like attempting to break windows
can get you hammered with an additional charge of criminal mischief. If breaking in to sell illicit substances
you can add drug possession to the list. And, of course, failure to cooperate once
identified never goes over well and can get you accused of assault and battery on an officer
or attempt to resist. If out on parole you can expect to land right
back behind the bars that you came from. Fortunately, for all involved, there is nothing
technically criminal about being silly or downright stupid. And, not that you should need such a warning,
but as these stories show, if you try to break into a jail there are many reasons why you
likely won’t succeed or get very far. In the case of Nicholas Celius, for instance,
the jail he attempted to breech had more than 800 cameras on hand. With such thorough surveillance he really
didn’t stand a chance. Then let’s not forget the formidable prison
ground fencing. Its wires snagged Sylvester Jiles, Patrick
Rempe, and Tiffany Hurd, among others who would otherwise have successfully entered. Then there’s things like locked doors, shatter
proof windows, and thermal imaging technology that work against potential intruders. Of course, in addition to these things there
are many other security measures in place. And if you call the police beforehand or drive
your car into the prison, you have pretty much zero chance of evading detection. Just when we thought criminals couldn’t
been any stupider, they never cease to amaze us. Do you have any fun prison break in stories
