Fugitive Surrender
(2008-04-24)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Fugitives wanted for nonviolent crimes are being
encouraged to surrender at one of Detroit's biggest and most
influential churches.
Fugitive Safe Surrender began in Cleveland in 2005 and since has
been offered in seven other cities.
Federal, state, county and local officials said Thursday they
expect hundreds of fugitives to turn themselves in from June 4-7 at
Second Ebenezer Church.
U.S. Marshal Robert Grubbs says the program does not offer
amnesty, but those who turn themselves in will receive "favorable
consideration" when their cases are processed. They also will be
offered services like job skills training and substance abuse
counseling.
