FELONY ESCAPE: Rodriguez Faces New Charges

Orlando Rodriguez

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.

    • No More Tea Bags

      “happy”??? I forgot that the teabuggers don’t believe in book learnin. Here’s a quote for you from Isaac Asminov,
      “Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’”
      That is the TeaParty in a nutshell.
