ROCKLAND — A Maine jail inmate facing sexual assault charges had his bail revoked after he tried to escape by climbing over the fence at the Knox County Jail in Rockland.

Officials say Bradley Lemay suffered cuts and possibly an ankle injury when he climbed the fence in the jail’s exercise yard on July 2.

The Bangor Daily News says a correctional officer ordered Lemay down, but he fell back into the yard.

Lemay was treated at a local hospital and released the same day.

Lemay is facing sexual assault and other charges stemming from a June 9 incident in Camden.

He was recently released from the Maine State Prison after 21 years for convictions of kidnapping and gross sexual misconduct.
