MCTC inmate's escape case sent to Washington County Circuit Court

April 02, 2008

A Maryland Correctional Training Center inmate who drove off from a work detail in July had his case forwarded to Washington County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Raymous Little, 44, escaped from a Washington County Roads Department shop on National Pike in a Chevrolet truck that was parked in the shop's lot, according to police.

Little, who was serving an 18-month sentence for theft, had family in the Baltimore area and was found by Baltimore County Police.

He faces charges of first-degree escape, the unlawful taking of a vehicle and theft, Washington County District Court documents show.

The maximum penalty for the conviction of first-degree escape is 10 years in prison.

A District Court judge found probable cause for the charges and ordered that Little held without bond. Little was in custody of the Maryland Division of Correction, court documents show.


Inmates on work detail were cleaning the shop when a correctional officer who was guarding the group noticed that one of the men was missing, Ed Plank, director of the highway department, told The Herald-Mail.

An employee left keys on the floorboard of a personal truck, which also was missing, Plank said.
