The Huron County Sheriff's Office has completed its investigation of a man with a history of "jail jumping."

"Jail jumping" is a term used at the sheriff's office for an inmate who attempts to harm himself or herself, with the goal to receive medical attention and escape incarceration.

One of the most-recent jail jumpers was Jamichael Randleman, 21, of New London.

For a story in Saturday's Reflector, Lt. Chris Stanfield outlined four incidents where Randleman tried to harm himself at the jail. Just one of those incidents cost taxpayers at least $5,000.
