A LaRue County inmate enjoyed about eight hours of freedom last week after escaping from the detention center in a car owned by the jail.
George Richard Gaunt III, 21, of Ludlow in northern Kentucky was serving a three-year sentence at the facility on charges of third-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.
According to Chief Deputy Travis Strader, Gaunt attended a religious service at the jail about 7 p.m. Feb. 9 and left through a back door sometime later.
