Now They're in BIG Trouble

More proof that crime doesn't pay...

Some Offenders Skipping Out On Jail Time After Deferral

Offenders Who Try To Start Sentences Deferred Again

CINCINNATI -- Some nonviolent offenders told to come back later when the jails around Cincinnati have room for them aren't returning.

The deferrals are the result of budget cuts that led to layoffs at the Hamilton County Sheriff's office and forced closure of the county's second-largest jail.

About 23 of the 90 people told to check in with jailers in Cincinnati over the past month to see if they could start their sentences didn't call in.

Sheriff's officials said there will be no concentrated effort to find them because there aren't enough officers. Even the 67 offenders who did check in had their sentences delayed again.
