Placeholder Image

A man who bolted while taking a restroom break on his way to jail will serve 90 additional days behind bars.
The man, Raymond Edward Farless, 31, was ordered by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to serve 90 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence on the charge of escape. His jail time for escape will be served in addition to any other time he owes the state.
His additional three months of incarceration comes for his escape as he was being returned to Warren County Jail. According to warrants against him, he had been on furlow from jail for treatment at the Buffalo Valley treatment facility. He was being returned back to jail by a facility employee when he asked to stop to use the bathroom.
“The driver, Dick Spencer, stopped at the BP gas station at Exit 110 in Coffee County,” said sheriff’s deputy Tony Taylor who investigated the case. “Mr. Farless then escaped from the custody of the driver.”
The sheriff’s department here was notified two hours after the escape. Farless was later taken into custody.
