Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

2nd escapee turns himself in

After nearly three weeks on the run, an escaped Mount Olive Correctional Complex inmate is back in jail.

William Okey Cline, 25, turned himself into the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department just after midnight today, according to Sheriff Randall Aliff.

Cline was found to be missing from the complex’s minimum security work camp Oct. 26.

Aliff said Cline had been in the Hanover area, where he had relatives and where authorities had been searching since his escape.

“We had some good intelligence on him,” Aliff said, adding authorities were closing in on the escapee.

Cline was sentenced to one to 10 years in prison for daytime burglary and considered a non-violent offender.

He was transported to Southern Regional Jail, Aliff said, then will be returned to Mount Olive.

A second inmate, Kenneth Ray Hager, who escaped at the same time, turned himself into Boone County authorities Nov. 6.
