Thursday Gregory Scott Northcutt of Ringgold decide for some reason not to turn himself in to begin a 17-year prison sentence. He instead cut off his ankle monitor and disappeared. (A man with nothing to lose.. Why on earth was he out with nothing but an ankle monitor?)

It’s unclear how many charges he was convicted of, but last September Northcutt was arrested on two charges each of aggravated sexual battery, child molestation, aggravated child molestation, and enticing a child for indecent purposes. He has older arrests in Catoosa for disorderly conduct, theft by receiving stolen property, and lying to officers.   Tiny Facebook
