Man accused in failure-to-return warrant

From Local Sources


JASPER — A Spencer County man named in an August 2018 warrant after failing to return to lawful detention was booked Friday into the Dubois County Security Center.

Matthew D. Davis, 21, Grandview, was serving a pretrial work release commitment through the Dubois County Community Corrections Center when, on Aug. 22, 2018, he did not return to the center after being released for a day of work, according to court documents.

A warrant for his arrest was issued out of Dubois Circuit Court two days later.

The Dubois Count Sheriff’s Office booked Davis into the Dubois County Security Center at 7:13 p.m. Friday on the warrant charging him with a Level 6 felony count of failure to return to lawful detention.

Davis, who posted bond Friday, appeared in court Monday to answer to the charge. The court appointed pauper counsel, entered a preliminary plea of not guilty on Davis’ behalf and set his next court appearance for Oct. 7.
