Inmate missed jail
VIERA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for violating his probation by trying to break into the Brevard County jail.

A judged sentenced 25-year-old Sylvester Jiles of Cocoa on Monday. He was convicted in January of trespassing on jail property and resisting an officer.

Authorities say Jiles tried to climb a 12-foot fence at the Brevard County Detention Center in August. He was caught and hospitalized with severe cuts from the barbed wire. He had been released a week earlier after accepting a plea deal on a manslaughter charge.

Jiles had begged jail officials to take him back into custody, saying he feared retaliation from the victim’s family. Jail officials said they couldn’t take him in and told him to file a police report.

Load of baked goods dumped along Ind. river
MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Need some dough? Police say someone has dumped hundreds of breads, bagels and buns along a river in Muncie, Ind.

Qualls says restaurant managers assured him they would look into what happened. The unsold baked goods are usually given each day to charitable organizations. Panera Bread spokeswoman Linn Parrish says managers didn’t immediately know how the bread got to the river bank.’
