Nathaniel Wohl


One month after he reportedly escaped custody, a Burleigh-Morton County Detention Center inmate is back in jail with new charges.

Nathaniel Raymond Wohl, 28, of Mandan, allegedly never returned from furlough for a chemical dependency evaluation on Sept. 6. He was in jail as a pre-trial inmate for two cases, including methamphetamine-related felony charges from July set for December trial.

Now Class C felony escape is the latest charge leveled against Wohl. He was booked into the detention center after his arrest Friday night by the Morton County Sheriff's Department. It's unclear where he was arrested.

Since January, Wohl has faced a litany of separate charges, including multiple driving- and drug-related offenses. He's also been charged at least seven times this year for driving under suspension.

About a week after his alleged escape, a drug court team denied Wohl's application for Bismarck-Mandan Drug/DUI Court. Drug court had approved his Sept. 6 furlough, according to court documents.

He is held in jail pending $5,000 cash bond on the escape charge.
