GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - A man who was serving a sentence on work release is now facing a new felony charge.

Court records show Mark Patterson was charged Friday with failure to return to lawful detention, and a warrant for his arrest was issued Monday.

He was booked back in jail Tuesday.

Records show Patterson reached a plea agreement in May in a meth possession and criminal trespass case.

As we reported in March, Police say Patterson was found inside a home he didn’t have permission to be in.

He was sentenced to more than a year on work release.
