How a Yukon prison failed its highest-profile inmate

“The name Michael Nehass rings a bell to few across Canada. But in the Yukon, he is a household name. News articles over the years have detailed his numerous charges for violent offences, bizarre outbursts in court ranting about conspiracy theories, and his mistreatment in the justice system. His mugshot often appears in local media: a striking and intimidating figure with a smirk and dark eyes, a distinguishing scar over his left eyebrow and two teardrop tattoos inked near the outer corner of his left eye. Today, the 33-year-old has visibly aged: He’s lanky with shaggy hair, his years in criminal institutions clearly having taken their toll.”
