DECATUR, Ala. — Authorities say an Alabama inmate assigned to a work release program faces new charges after he walked away from a job site.
Local news outlets report 28-year-old Brian O’Neal Williams was recaptured without incident Sunday afternoon at a hotel in Decatur. The Alabama Department of Corrections said Williams tried to escape Saturday when he left his designated job site.
Williams is serving a five-year sentenced for first-degree theft. He was convicted of the charge last year in Morgan County.
Corrections officials said Williams had been assigned to the Decatur Work Release Center.
