SC officials say escaped inmate captured

Jun 2, 2010 10:01:00 PM - thestate.com
South Carolina prison officials say an inmate who walked away from a minimum-security facility has been captured in Georgia.

The state Corrections Department said in a news release that 29-year-old Brandon McDonald was arrested Wednesday at a hotel in Toccoa, Ga. The agency said McDonald would be transferred to a medium- or maximum-security prison when he is returned to South Carolina.

McDonald was less than a year into a four-year sentence for assault and battery in Greenwood County when officials say he walked away from the Lower Savannah Pre-Release Center on March 1.

McDonald faces a felony escape charge. If convicted, he faces a sentence of one to 15 years.
