ANXIETY IS A DUD
What's worse than being trapped behind prison bars? Trying to live while avoiding capture.
Sergei was a Latvian prison convict with ten months left to serve on his seven-year burglary sentence, when he decided to escape. But even after years of freedom, the escapee couldn't relax. "Worry over being caught was proving too stressful." He worked several jobs and moved into an apartment with his girlfriend, but Sergei was constantly looking over his shoulder.
In a move that surprised prison officials, Sergei showed up at the minimum-security facility and turned himself in five years after he first escaped.
