Inmate escapes

    An inmate at a correction center in Wilmington has escaped. The 18-year-old didn’t turn up at a headcount last night.


    Christian O’Leary arrived at Plummer County Correctional Nov. 17, the AP reports, and hopped a fence last night to break free. He was serving a one-year sentence for assault.

    Just what kind of fences do they have at this facility?
