(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.
