Austin Risor #84566 did not return from his work assignment this morning. For a while, staff were able to monitor his location through the electronic monitoring device he was wearing. Once in the area of N 33rd and Superior Street, he removed the device, which was recovered by staff. 

Risor started his sentence on September 16, 2016. He was sentenced to 10 to 11 years for numerous charges out of Madison County including drug offenses, motor vehicle violations, theft, unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle and public indecency.
