Beaver Dam Man Sentenced For Escaping On Work Release

(Juneau) A Beaver Dam man was placed on probation for three years Monday for failing to return to the Dodge County Jail while on work release. Paul Digangi entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Escape Criminal Arrest. Digangi also had a one-and-a-half year prison sentence imposed and stayed. Correctional staff was made aware that the 32-year-old had not returned from his shift at a local construction company in January. A driver for the Huber prisoners informed authorities that Digangi did not need a ride back to the jail and had arranged for other accommodations. After several attempts to contact the missing inmate, police contacted his employer and were informed that Digangi had been fired the previous day. Digangi was located around a week later and was taken into Custody in Mayville after authorities received a tip from a citizen on his whereabouts.
