    Default Man gets 15 years after trying to break into jail

    VIERA, Fla. - A former inmate was sentenced to 15 years in prison for violating his probation by trying to break back into the Brevard County jail.

    Sylvester Jiles, 25, of Cocoa, originally was sentenced to eight years of probation under a plea deal on a manslaughter charge in the 2007 shooting death of 19-year-old Dustin Prouse. On Aug. 31 of last year, three days after his release, hereturned to the jail and begged deputies to take him back in custody, saying he feared retaliation from the victim's family. Jail officials said they couldn't take him in and told him to file a police report.

    Authorities said Jiles then tried to climb a 12-foot fence at the detention center. He was caught and hospitalized with severe cuts from the barbed wire. He was convicted in January of trespassing on jail property and resisting an officer

    On Monday, Circuit Judge George Maxwell sentenced him to the maximum 15 years in prison for violating probation. Jiles broke into a profanity-laced tirade and was briefly led out of the courtroom.

    Jiles apologized when he was returned to the courtroom.

    "I just wanted to say I'm not saying I'm the shooter. I only pled guilty to it," he said, according to floridatoday.com. "I'm not going against your sentence, sir. You say 15 years. It is what it is."

    I almost feel sad for this idiot. Perhaps he got used to the set feeding and sleep times... WTH!

    Have read about people who serve sentences and do not want to be out in society as they're used to The Life. But generally those cases involved folks that had been locked up for some time...not simple probation.

    A lot of people who have been incarcerated for long periods of time have difficulty adjusting to being out on their own. Charles Manson is a famous case of this. Too bad they didn't keep him locked up like he wanted,but hindsight is 20/20.

    he didn't go back because he was so used to life in prison...

    On Aug. 31 of last year, three days after his release, he returned to the jail and begged deputies to take him back in custody, saying he feared retaliation from the victim's family.
    i don't know if this is funny or sad.
