It's not clear what Ronald A. Rutledge's schedule looked like for his last 18 days at Whitman County Jail. But whatever he had penciled in must have been bad enough to risk another 10 years in there so he could escape.
He was serving four months for burglary at the time. And as a true testament of his skill as such, he apparently burgled himself a late-model Nissan truck and hasn't been seen since.
It'll be interesting to see if his luck continues, and he's able to change his name and disappear from all legal existence in America for the rest of his life. If so, all those naysayers who told him to just accept that he was Whitman County's bitch for 18 more days can suck it.
