Police arrest work furlough escapee

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:30 a.m. HST, Oct 25, 2013

A 45-year-old Oahu Community Correctional Center inmate is a facing an escape charge after he failed to return from a work furlough leave on Tuesday.

Hashim Mustapha left OCCC's Laumaka Work Furlough Center at 9 p.m. Monday. He was supposed to return to the Kalihi facility at 9 a.m. the next morning, but failed to show up. 

Mustapha was found this morning and arrested at 4 a.m., and will likely have a second-degree escape charge added to his sentence.

He was serving time for second-degree methamphetamine trafficking and third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug. He was scheduled for a parole hearing in January.

How does the current Corrections Administrator manage to keep his job? What with the rash of escapes and corrupt prison guards recently (that we know of), any other "CEO" would be fired forthwith! Just watch, like the DOE, they'll be asking the legislature for yet more money in their next budget proposal/request. Rewarding sub-standard results seems to be the norm here.

Part of the problem, actually a major part of the problem, is that these felons are sentenced to an escape charge that are served concurrently with their current charges making rendering them useless. Tell that to the judges.
