In the early morning hours of Saturday, July 12th, AWOL inmate Darriell L. Banks, age 17 of Madison, was returned to the Dane County Jail following a traffic stop by Capitol Police. Banks was declared AWOL on Saturday, July 5th after he cut his GPS ankle bracelet off and fled from his home following an argument with family members. Banks had been serving a 60-day sentence for Bail Jumping. Banks initially lied about his identity when stopped by Capitol PD. He was consequently brought to the Jail for a positive ID using the Morpho Fast ID, a web-based fingerprint identification system. Banks now faces an additional charge of Obstructing, and the Sheriff’s Office will be petitioning the court for revocation of his Huber rights.
