Franklin County inmate captured after work interview

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Franklin County Jail inmate who failed to return from a work release job interview Monday was picked up that afternoon by the Chambersburg Police Department, Warden John Wetzel said.

Michael Dynal Hackey Sr. had been in jail since Sept. 19 when he received a one-month sentence for a parole violation, Wetzel said. However, Hackey's release was conditional in that he had to have an approved home plan before he could be released, the warden said.

Hackey's job interview was to be over by noon and, when he had not returned by 1:30 p.m., police were notified, Wetzel said.

At about 4 p.m., Wetzel said borough police told him Hackey had been picked up a few minutes earlier.

Hackey originally was sentenced to jail on Feb. 14, 2007, on convictions for simple assault and intimidation of a witness, Wetzel said. His original parole date was July 11, 2007, he said.

His parole from the original sentence would have expired in March 2009, according to Wetzel.
