Recent Hutchins State Jail Escaped Offender was serving more then 18 yrs, and had been assigned there since 2010
TDCJ Spokesperson confirmed the story today. TDCJ claims that he arrived at the Hutchins state jail on 11/17/2010. Over one year ago. He was serving an 18 year sentence for aggravated assault. TDCJ claims that he was quickly re-captured just outside of the facility. The escape was reported to have happened on 12/01/2011 at 2157hours.
Word of an Offender assigned to the Hutchins state jail facility near Dallas escaping TDCJ custody for a short period of time was made available via an employee tip today. Allegations are that the brief escape was covered up by the agency due to the current investigation that has been underway since last month by the Backgate regarding state jail offenders being assigned to those facilities outside of state law regarding state jail assigned offenders being assigned to two years or less, or being currently under the classification process. Allegedly, this offender was sentenced to over 18 years, and had been assigned to the Hutchins facility since 2010. State jail offenders are bound by state law to be assigned to either 2 years or less, or under current classification processes. None of which would have taken almost 2 years. State jails are less secure, and more centrally located as to most TDCJ facilities. Mainstream media has become involved in this story and more is sure to come soon.
