Deploying copyright laws to escape Four federal inmates were accused in 2004 of trying to escape from jail using copyright law. Yes. Believe it.
The four were indicted on allegations that they copyrighted their names, then demanded millions of dollars from prison officials for using the names without authorization.
The indictment alleges that inmates Russell Dean Landers, Clayton Heath Albers, Carl Ervin Batts and Barry Dean Bischof sent demand notices for payment to the warden of the El Reno federal prison and filed liens against his property. They then hired someone to seize his vehicles, freeze his bank accounts and change the locks on his house.
Then, believing the warden's property had been seized, the inmates said they would not return his property unless they were released from prison, according to the indictment.
It was at this point that the plan hit one of its many snags - the person hired by the inmates turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, according to U.S. Attorney John C. Richter.
Another slight snag in the (otherwise excellent) plan is the fact that copyright law really doesn't work like that…
Excess baggage A 19-year-old German woman escaped from prison by hiding in a friend's suitcase.
The fugitive hid inside the large case when her 17-year-old fellow inmate was released from the youth prison in northwest Germany on Friday, Lower Saxony ministry spokesman Dennis Weilmann said.
The girl simply walked out of the building with her friend concealed in her luggage, according to Weilmann.
'Our staff are going to make sure they inspect big suitcases more carefully in the future,' Weilmann said, having cunningly figured out where the prison authorities might have gone wrong.
The escaped prisoner had less than two weeks left to serve.
Well oil never The practice of burglars stripping naked and smearing themselves with grease has a long and noble history – but one that mostly occurs in hot climates, such as Malaysia or South Africa.
So congratulations are due to the suspected burglar who escaped from a Norwegian jail inside the arctic circle by removing all his clothes, covering himself in oil and slipping through the bars of the prison.
The escapee, identified by Norwegian authorities as 25-year-old Yuris Sinkevicius, was arrested on suspicion of being part of an organised theft ring in October 2007.
However, on Christmas Eve, the 5ft 8in Sinkevicius shed his clothes, and smeared vegetable oil over himself. He managed to wriggle through the bars of the jail in Vadsø, at the extreme north-eastern tip of Norway.
The plan seems to have worked perfectly, with only possible downside that it left him stark naked in an arctic tundra climate at the dead of winter.
Mother Trucker If the prison is fresh out of oil and none of your friends has a suitcase big enough to smuggle you out – you could always persuade someone to ram their way into the prison to pick you up in a huge truck. Just like convicted armed robber Jay Junior Sigler did.
He was an inmate at Everglades Correctional Institution in America and got some of his pals to smash through four prison gates using a big truck. His mum, dear old Sandra Sigler, was in a car following the lorry.
His friends jumped out of the truck once it reached the prison courtyard, where Jay was waiting, and they all piled into the car driven by mother Sigler and made good their escape.
It all went according to plan, until they swapped into different cars. The getaway driver of one hit an oncoming car and died, while police caught up with the other one about 40 miles from the prison and arrested all the occupants. [link to www.metro.co.uk]
