Inmate Returns to Des Moines Work Release Center

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Officials say an inmate who failed to return to a work release center in Des Moines is back in custody after she voluntarily came back to the facility.

The Iowa Department of Corrections says 24-year-old Tibise Joseph was placed on escape status when she didn't return to the center as scheduled on Sunday. Authorities say she showed up later on Sunday and is being held in the Polk County jail for violating her work release.

Joseph was sentenced in 2009 to up to 20 years in prison for assault and theft in Polk County. She was transferred to work release in April.
