A 31-year-old man who walked away from a rehabilitation facility without authorization was found later that day, authorities said Friday.
Jaime Clara walked away from a Male Community Reentry Program facility in Los Angeles about 11:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Authorities took Clara into custody about 10:30 that night, the CDCR said.
Clara was received by CDCR from Los Angeles County on Feb. 27, 2020, after being sentenced to four years for “corporal injury on specific persons resulting in traumatic condition,” a CDCR statement said.
He arrived at the MCRP on March 18 and was scheduled to be released from custody on June 17, 2022.
The MCRP is a voluntary program for male offenders who have about one year left of their sentence to serve. It allows eligible offenders committed to state prison to serve the end of their sentences in a reentry center that provides community-based rehabilitative services.
