St. John's inmate mistakenly released from jail – again

A New Brunswick inmate who was released by mistake from a Saint John jail last month is now facing charges in a home invasion that resulted in a death. It's not clear if McCutcheon duped the administration at the detention centre or if it was a paperwork error.

In 2010 another inmate was mistakenly released from jail in St. John's Newfoundland even after trying to persuade guards, sheriff's officers, court staff and police that he should remain locked up.


  1. K:
    First off, love your site!

    But this story is about Ronald McCutcheon who was arrested in Saint John, NB, not St. John's, NL. The story you linked to from 2010 is about St. John's, NL. It's pretty sad that this happens, let alone in two different provinces. It's happened in NS as well.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't realize there was a Saint John in NL as well as NB. My bad.

  3. Curious as to who the reporter is that made the discovery. Any ideas?
