LOS ANGELES — A man who walked away from the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) in Los Angeles County on Thursday, October 4, 2018, was apprehended today.

Jacob M. Stuck, 30, was apprehended at approximately 9:49 a.m. Saturday, October 13 in Salt Lake City, Utah, by agents from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Special Service Unit, with the assistance of the Los Angeles Fugitive Apprehension Team and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Salt Lake City Regional Detention Facility, where he will await extradition back to California. This case will be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of escape charges.

Stuck had been participating in the MCRP, which allows eligible offenders committed to state prison to serve the end of their sentences in the re-entry center and provides them the programs and tools necessary to transition from custody to the community. It is a voluntary program for male offenders who have approximately one year left to serve. The program links participants to a range of community-based rehabilitative services that assist with substance use disorders, mental health care, medical care, employment, education, housing, family reunification and social support.

Stuck was admitted to CDCR from Los Angeles County on June 6, 2017, with a two-year, eight-month sentence for False Imprisonment with Violence. He was scheduled to be released to probation supervision on October 18, 2018.

Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.
