FELONY ESCAPE: Rodriguez Faces New Charges
A Des Moines man who escaped from a work release facility last month is facing new charges.
The Polk County attorney’s office filed felony escape charges against Orlando Rodriguez Tuesday.
Rodriguez was put on escape status November 3 after he failed to return to the Fort Des Moines facility.
Authorities found him the following day at a home in Des Moines. He could be arraigned next week.
Rodriguez was convicted in the 2009 hit-and-run death of Bruce Mundy.
Rodriguez served four years of a ten year sentence before he entered the work release program.
