Prisoner Pleads Guilty to Escaping from Bloomfield Halfway House

Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that CHARLES HARRISON, 34, pleaded guilty today in Bridgeport federal court to escaping from the custody of the Attorney General.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in December 2012, Harrison was sentenced in the Northern District of New York to 120 months of imprisonment for a narcotics trafficking offense.  On March 17, 2021, he was transferred to the Drapelick Center, a Residential Reentry Center (halfway house) in Bloomfield, to complete his custodial sentence. On September 7, 2021, Harrison left the facility on a Day Pass and failed to return.  He was located and arrested in New York on March 29, 2022.

Harrison has been detained since his arrest.

Harrison is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Michael P. Shea in Hartford on January 6, 2023.  The offense carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years.

This matter was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda S. Oakes.
