CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) — The Alcorn County jail has a new inmate behind bars, and he has a familiar face.
Thirty-five-year-old Cletus Patterson was featured in a story on WTVA News October 22.
He has a long list of crimes including burglary.
Patterson told WTVA he wanted to pay some $7,000 in fines, but he didn't have the money and he was frustrated that time spent in jail would not make any difference.
Patterson said he was tired of a life of crime.
He is now accused of breaking the law again.
Corinth Police Detective Heather Glass says a call was made to 9-1-1 from a young woman who believed someone had broken into her home.
Shortly after the 10:30 p.m. call, Corinth Police responded and say they found Patterson hiding behind a sofa in the McKewen Street home.
He entered through a window.
Bond is set at $75,000.
