An inmate who took some time off from his sentence at the Summit County Jail after being let out temporarily on work release has returned, officials confirmed Wednesday.

Ramon Soto turned himself in to the jail at approximately 8 p.m. Tuesday night after disappearing for 24 hours. A warrant was issued for his arrest Tuesday afternoon when he failed to return to the jail after being let out on a work-release program the previous day.

Soto, 35, is now facing an additional charge of escape, a class 3 misdemeanor.

If convicted, he could face a sentence of six months in jail and/or a $750 fine.

He is currently serving a one-year sentence for a DUI conviction in Lake County.

He will reportedly lose his work-release privileges in addition to the escape charge.

It is unclear whether Soto gave a reason for his failure to return on schedule, but officials said he was concerned about the consequences he would face when he came back to the jail.
