So much for Junior Jorju’s run for freedom. Guy was doing a 15-day sentence at Maui Community Correctional Center (MCCC) for Driving without a License, Failure to Appear and Criminal Contempt when he somehow bailed Saturday night after the 7pm head count. At 9:30 this morning, sheriffs deputies “acting on a tip” found Jorju “hiding in the back parking lot of the Harbor Lights Condominium Complex in Kahului,” according to a state Department of Public Safety news release sent out today.
“It is not known exactly how Jorju managed to escape at this time,” states today’s news release. “Maui Police are investigating the escape case.”
Seriously, all Jorju had to do was 15 days in prison. Now he’s is looking at five years for felony escape.
