Man Says He Broke Law, Called 911 To See Jailed Brother

A Michigan man accused of breaking into a gas station -- and then calling police himself so he could see his brother in jail -- has pleaded to a lesser charge.

Twenty-four-year-old Matthew Robert Kiss of Imlay City pleaded guilty Friday to attempted breaking and entering.

A St. Clair County judge will sentence Kiss on April 27.

Police say Kiss broke into a gas station in Capac in January, smoked cigarettes and drank alcohol before calling 911 on himself. He said he wanted to go to jail to see his incarcerated brother. But he was not allowed to see him.

Defense attorney James Downey did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

    To anonymous: It is actually not that far fetched. Alot of inmates are not allowed to have visitors for different reasons. behvaior, medical, and physcological issues are the main causes. Then you have protection programs where inmates are not allowed to have visitors because they are in solitary confinement. Fortunately for us, rules do apply in jail as well.

    Did the jail allow a visitors day? Sounds like the man is telling a lie to me. He could have talked with the city and asked to see him.

    Sounds like the first episode of Prison Break.

    I just love how criminals are able to "plea" anything in court these days. It is hard to even justify a court date for people like this in my opinion, just skip straight to sentencing..
