Man Who Escaped Carroll County Prison In 60s Will Not Be Extradited To Georgia

A 71-year old man who escaped from a Carroll County prison in 1968, will be allowed to remain in Connecticut, where U.S. marshals had located him earlier this year, nearly a decade after he fled.

Georgia's Department Of Corrections had been pressing for Robert Stackowitz to be extradited back to Georgia, but according to the Hartford Courant, after reviewing documentation about the elderly man’s precarious medical condition, officials have agreed to turn his supervision over to Connecticut authorities.

Stackowitz’s attorney tells the paper that he believes Stackowitz will be allowed to remain free but be under supervision of a Connecticut parole officer until 2022.

Stackowitz was sentenced to 17 years for a robbery conviction in 1966.  He served two years before escaping from the Carroll County Convict Barracks.
