Beaufort jail escape suspect gets solitary

Mar 30, 2011 9:54:00 AM - thestate.com
A suspect in a fatal shooting who tried to escape from the Beaufort County jail is getting two months in solitary confinement.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports 27-year-old Preston Oates will be housed alone in his cell and get only an hour a day for recreation.

Oates was a tow truck driver who is charged in the shooting death of 34-year-old Carlos Olivera of Bluffton during an argument last Christmas Eve. The dispute took place after Oates put a wheel boot on Olivera's minivan.
