Escape charges will be tacked on to the record of a 27-year-old Oahu Community Corrections inmate who failed to return on time after being out on a work furlough Wednesday.

Jeremy Ray Kawaika Chinen, who is serving time for car theft and second-degree burglary, failed to return at 11 p.m. Wednesday after checking out from Laumaka Work Furlough Center earlier in the day.

He returned Laumaka at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and was arrested for second-degree escape. Inmates assigned to the Laumaka Work Furlough Center, which is located a block away from OCCC, are either actively seeking employment or working in the community.

Almost every month a prisoner on work furlough fails to return on time or not at all. Outside the prison confines is is a scary place to try and make a living for an ex-con. Safer and more convenient in a structured environment where you can get 3 squares and bunk to sleep on, plus all the recreational benefits like big screen HD television. Oh, also you can sign up for the medicaid health care coverage, recently mandated under the ACA.
