Update: Sussex Absconder Apprehended


An offender who failed to return to the Sussex Community Corrections Center from an approved work pass has been apprehended, according to the Delaware Department of Correction.

The DOC says 28-year-old Demetrius Wright was serving for a violation of probation related to a charge of theft.

Community Corrections Centers manage offenders who are transitioning back into the community. They are permitted to leave for employment, to seek work or to attend approved treatment centers.

Wright was apprehended in Dover, and faces a charge of escape after conviction.
