Sex offender caught 37 years after prison escape

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) -- A convicted sex offender who escaped from a Michigan prison in 1970 was arrested in Milwaukee as a fugitive.

Roger Allen Chipman is in custody in the Milwaukee County Jail awaiting extradition to Michigan to serve the remainder of his term. Chipman was sentenced to between 5-10 years for indecent liberties with a minor on Oct. 9, 1968, and sent to what is now known as the Marquette State Branch Prison. He escaped while on a work detail on Oct. 14, 1970.

In the ensuing 37 years, Chipman continued to sexually assault children and spent a number of years in prison for those crimes. In 1978, he was arrested in Milwaukee and sentenced to three years in prison. He was arrested again in 1995 and sentenced to eight years in prison for first-degree sexual assault. He served his full term and was released in November 2004.

He managed to evade the connection to his earlier Michigan arrest by using a different name, birth date and fake Social Security number. He registered as a sex offender in Wisconsin using his alias.

But in May, the US Marshals sent Chipman's fingerprints around the country. A match came back, and he was arrested without incident, though he initially denied being Chipman.

Very interesting things going on here.

1) That the initial conviction was for what sounds like a parking meter violation (but the sentencing was likely the max due to severity of offense)

2) He was allowed to escape!!! A pedo was out on a work detail!!! WTF!!! Trust your government to do ANYTING right? All USA sheeple say "Amnen"

3) He went on to offend SO much that he got caught 2 more times. You KNOW those two incedents were not issolated incedents. They just dont get caught without a LOT of incedents/offenses.

I hope the victims sue the blood out of Michigan government.

Maybe I read this wrong, or it was mis-reported, but the 'rest of his term', surely means the rest of his life

"Chipman was sentenced to between 5-10 years"
he was sentenced in 1968
he escaped in 1970
...
my bet - 3 to 8 years left

Life would be nice, but unfortunately a lot of states are still stupid on sentencing. Here in PA a College professor plead guilty to sexual assault on a 10 year old and his "Max term" will be 5 years, and that's if that give him the max. Tell me that ain't broken.

It is indeed. Reading through the article I was wondering who is going to take the heat for this fiasco. I rather like Rob's idea:

Unfortunately, it's this approach and not that of any appeal for justice and the proper protection of children that is likely to get attention.

Much love,
Larry
