Ex-Prison Chief Gets Shorter Sentence After Being Threatened

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A former Delaware prison security chief serving time behind bars after being accused of having sex with an inmate has received a shorter sentence because his attorney says he was threatened by other inmates.
    
A judge modified Fred Way III's sentence last week.
    
Way was initially ordered to serve 25 weekends at Plummer Community Corrections Center, but he will now serve seven days in the prison's secured housing unit followed by three months of house arrest.
    
Way's attorney, Thomas Foley, says inmates threatened Way during his first weekend there.
    
Department of Correction spokeswoman Chelsea Hicks says officials found Way's amended sentence acceptable.
    
Way, who worked at Baylor Women's Correctional Institution, pleaded guilty in January to official misconduct charges related to the case.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
