Dunn was being confined at the facility for temporary post-release supervision.

He was arrested twice in 2012 after trying to contact Kunis. His first arrest came in February 2012 when he was found living in an unoccupied condo that the actress owned. Kunis got a restraining order against Dunn, which didn’t deter him from attempting to get in touch with her.

Dunn was arrested again in May, which is when prosecutors charged him with stalking and violating a restraining order. He pled no contest and was sentenced to six months in a live-in rehabilitation program.

Sheriffs and Probation Department officials are still on the lookout for Dunn.
