Description

If an inmate breaks out of jail, it's usually front-page news. But all over Washington State, criminals routinely commit virtual jail breaks that are either ignored or undetected by authorities. KING 5 found numerous cases in which offenders released on electronic monitoring programs -- often known as home detention -- were “Home Free.” Some not only evaded the home-based punishment for their crimes, they were free to commit new crimes while they were supposed to be under state or local supervision.
