Many prisoners would have been delighted to be finally free from the clutches of the law, but Rodney Dwayne Valentine, 37, from North Carolina has refused to leave jail unless he is chauffeur-driven out by the authorities.
The deputies in the Rockingham County Sheriff’s office refused to give him the needed ride to a motel and he decided not to leave. By 1pm on that day, he was re-arrested and charged with second-degree trespassing and promptly thrown back in jail.
According to The News & Record of Greensboro, Valentine, who has been in jail since May 22, 2012, got his freedom but had no permanent home address to go to.
He’s been slammed with a $500 bail and is expected to appear back in court on August 9.
It is still not clear if Valentine has a lawyer.
