Changes planned at Faulkner County jail following escape

     (AP) – Faulkner County Sheriff Matt Rice says changes will be made

following the recent escape of an inmate, but have not yet been put in place.

     Rice told the Log Cabin Democrat that the Nov. 11 escape is still under

investigation to determine “exactly what went wrong.”

     Rice said 50-year-old William Chamlee escaped from a recreation yard by going

through a hole in the fence and stealing a vehicle.

     Rice says Chamlee was free for 30 minutes to an hour before being found and

recaptured. The sheriff said the hole in the fence has been repaired.

     Chamlee has pleaded not guilty to charges that include escape, theft of

property, criminal mischief and fleeing. He was being held at the time for

failing to register as a sex offender.
