Two Wisconsin prison escapees remain in a Florida jail, after an extradition hearing scheduled yesterday was delayed until Thursday.
Prosecutors in Broward County Florida said there were not enough officers available to escort James Misleveck and James Newman from their cells to a courtroom – so the hearing was re-set. Both men walked away from a state prison boot camp at Black River Falls two weeks ago today. Authorities said they then went on a crime spree in Jackson and Monroe counties in which they stole four vehicles, kidnapped a casino worker, and led officers on a chase and a manhunt. Misleveck’s father was arrested the next day near Elroy, after officers who were looking for Misleveck found that his dad was reportedly growing marijuana in his home.
