An offender who had been deemed a walkaway from transitional leave since Nov. 20 is now in custody in the Jackson County Jail.
Officers with the Medford Police Department arrested Scott Bradley Wold Thursday night, after information led them to his whereabouts in Medford. Wold was transported and lodged at the Jackson County Jail and is awaiting transport back to Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) custody.
Wold released Oct. 2, 2012, from Columbia River Correctional Institution to transitional leave as part of an Alternative Incarceration Program (AIP). He was deemed a walkaway after he did not report back to his community housing by his 10 p.m. curfew, Nov. 20. A warrant had been issued for his arrest.
Oregon DOC AIPs are intensive prison programs offered to selected inmates. Inmates who successfully complete the 180-day in-prison program move into the community on transitional leave. Still under the custody of the DOC, inmates on transitional leave are tightly supervised by parole officers for 90 days while practicing the skills and discipline learned in prison.
Wold entered DOC custody on March 22, 2011, on one count of manufacturing marijuana, one count of delivering MDMA near a school, and one count of felony weapon charges out of Jackson County. He will return to DOC custody to serve the remainder of his sentence.
