MARIPOSA – On March 1st at 4:20 am officers discovered that inmate Joseph Speakman had walked away from the Mount Bullion Conservation Camp.

His last appearance had been at the 3:15 am inmate count. On March 4th after a multi agency search, officers found him in a vacant cabin approximately 3 miles from the Conservation Camp.

His re-arrest was nondescript. His new home will be the Sierra Conservation Center in Jamestown.

Speakman had arrived at Mount Bullion in June of 2018 from Santa Barbara County where he was to serve a four year sentence for vehicle theft.

The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office finally notes, “Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended”

The Mariposa County District Attorney’s office will now decide whether to levy escape charges against Speakman.
